A panel of Candida auris isolates and other yeast species that are related to C. auris or are commonly misidentified as C. auris.
Panel ID: CAU
Caution: C. auris has been shown to be transmitted in healthcare settings. It is a good colonizer of skin and can live for up to four weeks on fomites. Gloves and gowns should be worn when working with C. auris, and working in a hood or a biological safety cabinet is recommended to avoid laboratory contamination. Since products with C. albicans or fungicidal claims may not be effective against C. auris, 10% bleach or products with EPA approval for C. auris should be used for cleaning the work area.
MICs obtained by broth microdilution. Modal MIC is reported.
