Laboratory aids in the diagnosis of invasive candidiasis

  title={Laboratory aids in the diagnosis of invasive candidiasis},
  author={Michael A. Pfaller},
The laboratory diagnosis of candidiasis continues to be problematic; however, there have been several advances in the past decade which promise to enhance our ability to identify patients at high risk for infection and/or to document invasive candidiasis in critically ill and immunocompromised patients. The introduction of commercially available biphasic blood culture medium and subsequently the lysiscentrifugation procedure has markedly improved the ability of laboratories to detect fungemia… CONTINUE READING
