Susceptibility Testing Methods of Antifungal Agents

Several methods for testing antifungal susceptibility are currently utilized. Minimum inhibitory concentrations can be tested using standardized noncommercial or commercial tests. Fungicidal testing includes either in vitro methods, such as time-kill or minimum fungicidal testing methods, or animal models. This chapter provides background information for utilizing and evaluating results obtained from antifungal susceptibility testing methods.
