AlbiQuick™, for Candida albicans differentiation, 5 minute test, 25 tests per kit, by Hardy Diagnostics, shipped via ground only

Now you can test for Candida albicans in only five minutes! The new Hardy AlbiQuick™ utilizes two enzyme color reactions to produce an accurate result that’s easy to read out. AlbiQuick is performed on a convenient card with two reaction wells. Only Candida albicans possesses the enzymes that will hydrolyze the PRO and NAG compounds on the card. Incubation time is only five minutes at room temperature!

Requires the use of a handheld 366nm ultra violet lamp(see Cat. no. UVL56).

The old germ tube method of C. albicans identification requires several hours of incubation and tedious microscopy to produce a result. The AlbiQuick™ eliminates the need for this and other lengthy procedures.

A recent study, which compared the above NAG and PRO methods to the traditional germ tube test, showed a sensitivity of 99% and a specificity of 99-100% (the germ tube test showed a sensitivity of 95% and a specificity of 99%; all isolates confirmed by API 20C). Ref: Crist, et al, J. Clin. Microbiol. 34:2616-2618. Accurate, fast, and convenient...that’s AlbiQuick™!
