Azole resistance in fungii..

Well, there it is a new article out on the developing drug resistance in NOT bacteria but now in fungi, specifically Aspergillus.

We aren’t prescient here at Signal Diagnostics , but we do follow science news and about 3 years ago while we were developing our now patented drug resistance screening method azole resistance was starting to show up in the literature.  Like all good organisms, fungi just have to evolve and adapt to their environment.  So, not surprisingly, more and more news is coming out about yeast and the other fungi developing drug resistance to the chemicals used to eliminate them, specifically azoles and azole like compounds.

Fortunately, Signal Diagnostics has developed a rapid yeast test for drug resistance diagnostic test for antibiotic resistance, in this case an anti-fungal agent.

While you are visting the Signal Diagnostics site check out our other drug resistance marker assays, for Staph MRSA (methicillin), and Staph vancomyocin resistance, or for Malaria chloroquine resitance, and our most popular tests for Tuberculosis (rifampicin, isoniazid, ethambutol, streptomycin, and pyrazinamide) drug resistance.
