  • Analito: Candida
SKU: NCM1012A Categorías: , ,

Candida Chromogenic Agar is used for the isolation and differentiation of clinically important Candida species and is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.

Different species of Candida produce different kinds of infections. Candidiasis, the most common opportunistic fungal infection is frequently caused by Candida albicansCandida tropicalis and Candida glabrata infections occur less often. Candida spp. are present in clinical specimens due to environmental contamination, colonization, or a disease process. Candida albicans is the most common and is usually susceptible to the antigfungal agents’ azole group. However, Candida glabrataCandida tropicalis and Candida krusei are azole tolerant, thus the rapid identification of the different species of Candida is essential for its correct diagnosis and treatment.

Candida Chromogenic Agar uses chromogenic substrates to differentiate the three different species of Candida albicansCandida tropicalis and Candida krusei. Colonies of Candida albicans are green, those of Candida krusei are purple-pink and those of Candida tropicalis are blue.

In the medium Glucose is the fermentable carbohydrate providing carbon and energy. Peptone provides nitrogen, vitamins, minerals and amino acids essential for growth. Chloramphenicol is an antibiotic which aids in isolating pathogenic fungi from heavily contaminated material, as it inhibits most contaminating bacteria. It is a recommended antibiotic for use with media due to its heat stability and wide bacterial spectrum. The chromogenic mixture allows the identification and differentiation of all 3 species by producing easy-to-read results in one plate, since they present different colored colonies.
