Chromogenic Candida Differential Agar, Modified allows the easy and rapid identification and differentiation of all Candida species by producing easy-to-read results in one plate, since they present different colored colonies. Scientist ?Perry and Miller ?have reported that Candida albicans produces an enzyme ? -N-acetyl- galactosaminidase and according to ?Rousselle? et al incorporation of chromogenic or fluorogenic hexosaminidase substrates into the growth medium helps in identification of C.albicans isolates directly on primary isolation. This medium was optimized for sensitivity to C. albicans, C. tropicalis, and C.krusei and was tested with a wide range of yeasts and some molds.
for fast isolation and identi?cation of Candida species from clinical and non-clinical specimens
