Özet

Aim: To evaluate the antifungal activity of a model antifungal (fluconazole) against Candida albicans (ATCC 90028) and Candida glabrata (RSKK 04019) strains using a microbroth kinetic assay based on continuous monitoring of changes in the optical density of fungal growth. Recently, antifungal susceptibility testing has become more important because of the increasing incidence of both fungal infections and antifungal drug resistance.
