Abstract

Summary

The 4-methylumbelliferyl-N-acetyl---galactosaminide (UAG) test was evaluated in parallel with chlamydospore (CHL) and germ-tube (GT) tests for the identification of spp. The UAG test gave 86.6% correct identification of and . Non- and non- yeasts gave correct negative results in UAG tests. Only one isolate of gave a “false” positive reaction. The UAG test, which can be completed within 30 min, is a reliable test for screening non- and non- yeasts.
