Calcein AM-labeled human neutrophils (green) were cocultured with red fluorescent protein-tagged C. albicans (red) and calcofluor white-stained C. auris (blue) for 30 min. Neutrophils preferentially engaged C. albicans, ignoring C. auris. Open arrows point to neutrophils phagocytosing C. albicans. Closed arrows show C. auris cells. Few neutrophils engage C. auris in the presence or absence of C. albicans. Measurement bar represents 10 μm.
