GODOY-MARTINEZ, Patricio et al. Performance of the Albicans ID2Ò chromogenic medium for rapid identification of Candida albicans. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2006, vol.37, n.3, pp.218-220. ISSN 1517-8382.

The aim of our study was to evaluate the accuracy of the chromogenic media Albicans ID2Ò (bioMérieux, France) for the identification of Candida albicans among 330 yeast strains. All C. albicans (100) and C. dubliniensis (20) strains exhibited blue color when cultured on Albicans ID2Ò. However, the blue color was also exhibited by cultures of C. rugosa (30/30) and C. tropicalis (3/50) isolates.

Keywords : Candida albicans; chromogenic medium; Albicans ID2Ò media.
