Evaluation of disk diffusion method compared to broth microdilution for antifungal susceptibility testing of 3 echinocandins against Aspergillus spp
Diagnostic Microbiology and Infectious Disease, 05/30/2012
Martos AI et al. – Caspofungin MECs for all Aspergillus spp. strains tested were ≤0.25 μg/mL; IZs were ≥15 mm for most species except for A. terreus (11–22 mm). Both micafungin and anidulafungin MECs were ≤0.015 μg/mL, but micafungin IZs were ≥14 mm while anidulafungin IZs were ≥22 mm. As for caspofungin, the DD method could be a useful method for susceptibility testing of micafungin and anidulafungin against Aspergillus spp.
