Urine: Candida krusei – Shipped August 26, 2019 – FINAL RESULTS
This challenge was sent as a simulated urine sample. Laboratories were expected to isolate and identify Candida krusei.
MAIN EDUCATIONAL POINTS from MY1908-1
- Laboratories that are capable of isolating yeasts from urine cultures should at least be able to separate Candida species (not C. albicans) from Candida albicans even if they cannot fully identify individual species in order to identify those species that have greater potential for resistance.
