Abstract

Aim: On CHROMagar medium Candida species form different colors; thus, the medium enables the differentiation of these species from each other as well as from other Candida species. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of incubation temperatures, incubation times, and CO2 on the chromogenic properties of CHROMagar.
