Test ID MMLYP Antimicrobial Susceptibility Panel, Yeast, Varies

Biohazard Infectious

Useful For

Determining in vitro quantitative antifungal susceptibility (minimum inhibitory concentration) of non-fastidious yeast


Testing may be warranted to aid in the management of certain circumstances, such as:

-Refractory oropharyngeal infections due to Candida species in patients who appear to be experiencing therapeutic failure with standard agents at standard doses

-Invasive infections due to Candida species when the utility of azole antifungal agents is uncertain (eg, when the infection is due to a non-Candida albicans organism)

Method Name

Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC)

Antifungals included in the assay are: amphotericin B, anidulafungin, caspofungin fluconazole, 5-flucytosine, itraconazole, micafungin, posaconazole, and voriconazole.
