Abstract

The Phoenix Yeast ID and Vitek 2-YST panels were compared using 351 molecularly identified yeast isolates. The Phoenix showed a comparable rate of correct identification for 4 common (Phoenix, 98%; Vitek, 94%) and 45 uncommon species (Phoenix, 70%; Vitek, 64%) and had a shorter mean identification time (6-7 h).
