easy and rapid commercialized latex agglutination test, Bichro-Dubli Fumouze
Oral swab is collected, followed by microscopy and culture on selective media
Swab culture is normally the first test that is commonly done for identification of Candida species causing Candidiasis
It takes 1 to 3 days to have results
differentiate C. albicans from C. dubliniensis by detecting specific antigens located on the surface of C. dubliniensis blastoconidia
API and VITEK (
developed for Candida species identification.
PI 20C system
first available commercial kits used for the identification of yeas
ID 32C system (bioMérieux, France)
12 substrates more than API which can enable identification of a diverse set of clinically important yeasts and can also differentiate between C. albicans and C. dubliniensis
e Vitek 2 system is able to identify and detect Candida species and their antifungal susceptibility profile
BDG Fungitell assay
high false-positive, low sensitivity and specificity results
Molecular methods are more accurate and rapid in detecting Candida species.
apidly detect both primary and secondary antifungal resistance alleles
Polymerase chain reaction-based techniques
fast and easy use
