Abstract
Chromogenic media are frequently used in direct and rapid identification of yeasts because different <i>Candida </i>species produce unique colors on these media. We used 60 isolates of <i>Candida </i>species including 30 <i>C. albicans</i>, 10 <i>C. parapsilosis</i>, 11 <i>C. glabrata</i>, five <i>C. tropicalis</i>, and four <i>C. dubliniensis,</i> isolated from various clinical specimens, to evaluate the performance of HiChrome Candida agar. These strains had been identified by germ tube test, morphology on cornmeal agar, chlamydospore formation on tobacco agar and sugar assimilation tests. The sensitivity and specificity results were: <i>C. albicans</i> (96.55...
