A single center evaluation on using VIPcheckTM for screening azole resistance


Antifungal susceptibility testing is an essential tool for guiding therapy, although EUCAST and CLSI reference methods are often only available in specialized centres. Radboudumc studied the performance of the agar-based VIPCheck screening method for the detection of azole resistance in Aspergillus fumigatus cultures.

The evaluation is published in Antimicrob Agents Chemotherapy. 2017 Sep 18. pii: AAC.01250-17. doi: 10.1128/AAC.01250-17.
