A proposed algorithm for susceptibility testing of Candida spp. using ATB FUNGUS 3.
All the isolates are read automatically, but the C. tropicalis could be read visually according to the local epidemiological data. The categories were defined using the interpretive breakpoints by CLSI M27-S4 or epidemiological cut-off values (ECVs), and the isolates with any drug of resistant/non-WT results should be checked by reading visually. If there is still difficulty in reading or the resistance type is atypical, the susceptibility should be confirmed by CLSI BMD.
