A Candida-specific Luminex-based assay with 11 probes was employed for multiplexed, rapid identification of 1182 Candida sp. isolates that were received as part of an ongoing population-based surveillance. All the Candida isolates were previously identified by a combination of methods, including phenotype and sequence analysis. Results showed that the Luminex assay was an attractive alternative to reference methods, as it is rapid, yields correct species identification, and is user friendly.
