In this work, Candida famata and Candida krusei
were also isolated.
(12,13) Despite all the claims, many studies have demonstrated the ineffectiveness of fluconazole against Candida krusei
, (14,15) which has been recognized as a potentially multidrug-resistant fungal pathogen.

Candida species were identified preliminary according to the colors produced by the colonies on CHROMagar Candida ; green isolates: Candida albicans, Candida dubliniensis, Candida africana; blue isolates: Candida tropicalis; dry pink: Candida krusei
; creamy pink-lilac isolates: suspect of Candida glabrata, Candida parapsilosis, Candida guilliermondii; White isolates: other Candida spp.

According to the manufacturer, the cross-reactivity of Candigen with other closely related Candida species ranges from less than 10% for Candida krusei
to 75% for C tropicalis. Since all positive Candigen results were from PCR-positive but culture-negative specimens, we could not determine whether such cross-reactivity with other Candida species actually occurred.
Strains: Candida albicans (ATCC 14053 and 64546) and Candida krusei
(ATCC 6258) strains were used as a reference and eight different clinical isolates of Candida spp were evaluated in this study.
There are more than 200 species  of candida, but the following are considered to be important pathogens for humans: Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis, Candida krusei
, Candida guilliermondii, Candida glabrata (Now classified as Torulopsis glabrata) and Candida parapsilosis.
We found that the activity of Candida krusei
isolated from hand surfaces was higher compared with strains isolated from phone surfaces, for which statistically significant differences were shown for enzymes such as alkaline phosphatase, cystine arylamidase and acid phosphatase, and lower activity for naphthol phosphohydrolase and N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosidase.
where Candida albicans was the most frequently isolated species (63%), followed by Candida tropicalis (17%), Candida glabrata (13%), Candida parapsilosis (6.5%) and Candida krusei
(0.9%).14 In other studies, the prevalence of Candida albicans isolates was reported to be 53% and 55% respectively.15,16
