  • Conventional methods for fungal identification in the clinical laboratory rely on morphological and physiological tests. These tests often need several days or weeks to complete and are frequently unspecific. Molecular identification mostly implies sequencing, which is relatively expensive and time-consuming, as well as impractical for large numbers of isolates. The Rolling Circle Amplification approach, known as RCA, is a quick, critical and economic method for fungal species' identification… CONTINUE READING
