Candida albicans

Candida sp. cause a wide spectrum of diseases, ranging from superficial mucocutaneous disease to invasive illnesses, such as hepatosplenic candidiasis, Candida peritonitis and systemic candidiasis. Local and systemic disease caused by Candida sp. has resulted in numerous new clinical syndromes, the expression of which depends primarily on the immune status of the host. Although Candida most frequently infects the skin and mucosal surfaces, it can cause systemic infections manifesting as pneumonia, septicaemia or endocarditis in severely immuno-compromised patients. There does not appear to be significant difference in pathogenic potential of different Candida strains, therefore establishment of infection appears to be determined by host factors and not by the organism itself. However, the ability to assume various forms may be related to the pathogenicity of the organism.

Candida albicans PCR kits are qualitative tests and contain Internal Control which must be used in the isolation procedure in order to control the isolation process of each individual specimen and to identify possible PCR reaction inhibition.

For detection, 2 channels - FAM/Green and JOE/Yellow/HEX are needed.
