Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC)
For use in vitro in determining quantitative antifungal susceptibility (MIC) of nonfastidious yeast including Candida species, Cryptococcus species, and miscellaneous other rapid-growing yeast species. Antimicrobial panel includes Amphotericin B, Fluconazole, Flucytosine (5-Fluorocytosine), Itraconazole, Caspofungin, Voriconazole, Posaconazole, Micafungin, and Anidulafungin.
Results reported in mcg/mL. The MIC is the minimum concentration required to inhibit the organism.
* Reference ranges may change over time. Please refer to the original patient report when evaluating results.

Test performed on isolated organism in pure culture. Send infecting yeast on Sabouraud dextrose agar slant; agar plates are not acceptable. Place sealed agar slant inside clear, liquid tight SAF-T-PAK bag and seal tape liner. Place sealed bag and requisition inside white biohazard SAF-T-PAK envelope and seal. Transport at room temperature. Include antimicrobial(s), culture site, and suspected organism identification on requisition.
Test is referred to Mayo Medical Laboratories.
