26474 Antimicrobial Susceptibility Panel, Yeast, Varies (MMLYP)

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Panel, Yeast, Varies (MMLYP)
Test Code: MMLYPSO
Synonyms/Keywords

​Abelcet (Amphotericin B), Amphotericin B (Abelcet), Ancobon (5-Flucytosine), Anidulafungin (ERAXIS), CANCIDAS (Caspofungin), Caspofungin (CANCIDAS), Diflucan (Fluconazole), ERAXIS (Anidulafungin), Fluconazole (Diflucan), Flucytosine (Ancobon), Itraconazole (Sporanox), Micafungin (Mycamine), NOXAFIL (Posaconazole), Posaconazole (NOXAFIL), Sporanox (Itraconazole), Susceptibility Panel, Yeast, Susceptibility Testing, Vfend (Voriconazole), Voriconazole (Vfend), Yeast Susceptibility Panel

Test Components

Antifungals included in the assay are amphotericin B, anidulafungin, caspofungin fluconazole, 5-flucytosine, itraconazole, micafungin, posaconazole, and voriconazole.

When this test is ordered, the Susceptibility Yeast Panel will be performed at an additional charge. All yeast submitted will have susceptibility testing performed and billed as appropriate.

Useful For

Determining in vitro quantitative antifungal susceptibility (minimum inhibitory concentration) of non-fastidious yeast

As an aid in the management of certain circumstances, such as:

-Refractory oropharyngeal infections due to Candida species in patients who appear to be experiencing therapeutic failure with standard agents at standard doses

-Invasive infections due to Candida species when the utility of azole antifungal agents is uncertain (eg, when the infection is due to a non-Candida albicans organism)

Collection Processing Instructions

Specimen source and suspected organism identification are required. If identification of organism is not provided, FUNID / Culture Referred for Identification, Fungus, Varies will be performed at an additional charge.

Organism must be in pure culture, actively growing. Do not submit mixed cultures.
