Identification of Candida glabrata by a 30-second trehalase test

, : Identification of Candida glabrata by a 30-second trehalase test. Journal of Clinical Microbiology 40(10): 3602-3605

Rapid (30-s) trehalase tests done with material from colonies of 482 yeasts suspended in a drop of trehalose solution on a commercially supplied glucose test strip were positive for 225 (99.1%) of 227 Candida glabrata isolates grown on either of two differential media, Candida ID medium or CandiSelect medium. The test was positive for only 3 (1.2%) and 12 (4.7%) of 255 isolates of other medically important yeast species grown on the same two media, respectively.

A polarization averaged short-time Fourier transform (PASTFT) technique is developed for distributed fiber birefringence characterization based on counterpropagating stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) gain signal. This technique can be used for...

We present a novel method for the deconvolution of seismic sections to obtain the reflectivity section which conforms statistically to a two-dimensional fractal model of acoustic impedance variation in depth and lateral extent. The method derives...

When tested for individuals from five different island populations on the Galap...

The ubiquitous cAMP-protein kinase A (PKA) signaling pathway exhibits complex temporal requirements during the time course of associative memory processing. This directly raises questions about the molecular mechanisms that provide signaling spec...

The model, derived in an eulerian framework, can be considered as a refinement of a previous model obtained by a lagrangian approach. Comparison between the two...
