Serum (1,3)-beta-d-glucan (BDG) assay is a non-culture-based test recommended for the diagnosis of invasive candidiasis owing to its faster results and higher sensitivity than blood cultures. Its performance might vary for different Candida species. The aim of this study was to determine in vitro levels of BDG in Candida auris culture supernatants and evaluate BDG levels in patients with C. auris candidemia sustained by these stains.

Abstract

Serum (1,3)-beta-d-glucan (BDG) assay is a non-culture-based test recommended for the diagnosis of invasive candidiasis owing to its faster results and higher sensitivity than blood cultures. Its performance might vary for different Candida species. The aim of this study was to determine in vitro levels of BDG in Candida auris culture supernatants and evaluate BDG levels in patients with C. auris candidemia sustained by these stains.
