A colorimetric assay for the enumeration of Candida albicans in biological samples after amplification in a selective medium
Abstract The MTT (3 (4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl) 2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide) colorimetric assay was redesigned to enumerate C. albicans in biological samples. Major modifications include the totalExpand
