Abstract

Preliminary results about a multicenter evaluation of a commercial diffusion agar method are shown. This study was carried out by the Spanish Mycology Association involving 14 laboratories following a standarized protocol. Thirty tree strains of Candida, Cryptococcus, Hansenula, Rhodotorula and Trichosporon genera were tested. Human isolates, as well as reference strains from the ATCC and NCPF were included in the study. Antifungal agents tested were amphotericin B, 5-flucytosine; nistatin; fluconazole; itraconazole; tioconazole. Preliminary results indicated a excellent reproducibility of these test (mean of 96,4%) for all antifungals and laboratories.
