Simple and reliable detection of slime production of Candida spp. directly from blood culture bottles: Comparison of visual tube method and transmission electron microscopy

Abstract

Early detection of slime production may be useful for clinical decision because of its suggestive property for potential pathogenic capacity of a Candida strain especially in patients with a prosthetic device. In this study we aimed to compare the visual tube method (VTM) with transmission electron microscopy (TEM) in order to confirm the reliability of the… (More)
