Twenty-nine Candida parapsilosis, seventeen Candida orthopsilosis and two Candida metapsilosis bloodstream isolates were submitted for identification by VITEK-MS™ mass spectrometer. Four isolates, two C. orthopsilosis and two C. metapsilosis, were not identified. Inclusion of Superspectra of both species in this database is required to improve its discrimination power.
