Abstract

A microsphere-based Luminex assay was developed and validated for rapid identification of Aspergillus fumigatus from the other species within the A. fumigatus species complex (section Fumigati). This molecular tool was then employed to screen 499 clinical A. fumigatus species complex isolates collected from multiple medical centers throughout the world with results demonstrating the exclusive presence of A. fumigatus.
