New method for quantitating yeasts in clinical specimens

, : New method for quantitating yeasts in clinical specimens. Mycoses 32(10): 524-526

Existing methods for quantitating yeasts in clinical specimens usually rely on plate counts of sediments. A new method has been developed which uses filtration to concentrate a sample and fluorescence microscopy to facilitate counting. This method is fast and easy to perform and can be used for a wide variety of specimens including urine, mouthwash water, and vaginal fluid.
