Evaluation of the VITEK 2 system to test the susceptibility of Candida spp., Trichosporon asahii and Cryptococcus neoformans to amphotericin B, flucytosine, fluconazole and voriconazole: a comparison with the M27-A3 reference method.

We compared the susceptibilities of 302 isolates (209 Candida spp., 89 Cryptococcus neoformans and four Trichosporon asahii) against amphotericin B (AMB), flucytosine (5FC), fluconazole (FLC) and voriconazole (VRC) obtained with an automated commercial system (VITEK 2, bioMérieux, Spain) and the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI M27-A3… CONTINUE READING
