Comparative evaluation of two different methods of inoculum preparation for antifungal susceptibility testing of filamentous fungi



Comparative evaluation of two different methods of inoculum preparation for antifungal susceptibility testing of filamentous fungi



Journal of Antimicrobial ChemoTherapy 50(5): 719-722



Two different methods of inoculum preparation for susceptibility testing were analysed. The first method was adjustment of inoculum size by haemocytometer counting. The 2nd method was spectrophotometric adjustment at 530 nm. The reliability of both methods was assessed by colony counting. The overall agreement between colony counting and haemocytometer counts was 93.6%, and the intraclass coefficient correlation was 0.71 (P<0.05).
