  • Using 398 isolates of yeasts and yeastlike fungi comprising 9 genera and 26 species, as well as the hyphomycete Geotrichum candidum and the achlorophyllous alga Prototheca wickerhamii, we compared the API 20C yeast identification system with the modified Vitek yeast identification system with an expanded data base. We found 11 discrepancies between the two systems: five (1.3%) of the isolates (Blastoschizomyces capitatus, 1; Candida albicans, 1; Hansenula anomala, 1; Rhodotorula minuta, 2) had… CONTINUE READING
