Two commercial antifungal susceptibility testing systems (Fungitest and Neo-Sensitabs) were compared with the M27T-NCCLS reference broth microdilution method using one hundred isolates of Candida sp. and Crptococcus neoformans. Six different antifungal drugs were tested: amphotericin B, 5-fluorocytosine, fluconazole, itraconazole, ketoconazole and miconazole. The overall agreement between the Fungitest and the reference methods was much better than between the Neo-Sensitabs and the reference methods: the agreement for the Fungitest ranged from 100% for amphotericin B to 76.7% for itraconazo…
