  • The authors report here a polymerase chain reaction-based assay using a single primer pair (CR-f/CR-r), allowing discrimination between Candida africana and Candida albicans by using the hwp1 gene. The method also identifies Candida dubliniensis because it produces 3 different DNA fragments: approximately 700 bp for C. africana, 941 bp for C. albicans, and 569 for C. dubliniensis.
