Albicans IDR is a ready-to-use medium containing a hexosaminic substrate that allows rapid and specific identification of Candida albicans. In this study, we have evaluated its performance using 330 pure cultures of yeast strains previously identified by conventional mycological methods. The test correctly identified all the Candida albicans strains tested (186 isolates), but there were 28 false-positive reactions after 48 h of culture incubation. The false-positive isolates corresponded to the… CONTINUE READING
