- Testing yeasts directly from a positive blood culture shortens turn-around time.
- Direct identification with Vitek-2 correctly classified most Candida spp.
- A single C. glabrata was correctly identified with the direct method.
- Direct susceptibility testing had 100% agreement with the conventional method.
Culture-based identification and antifungal susceptibility take 48-72Â hours after positivity. We analyzed the performance of Vitek2 directly from 40 yeast-positive blood-cultures; agreement of 100% was observed for the tested antifungals; identification showed the same species in 31/40. The method reduces time (13 to 18Â h) for preliminary results.
