  • conjunctival
  • However, when scrapings are negative, analysis of conjunctival and scleral specimens by histopathology (stainings and cultures), tissue homogenization (PCR, culture, or cell culture lines), and indirect immunofluorescence (antimicrobe antibodies) techniques may be important for microbe isolation.
