About the Subcommittee on Antifungal Susceptibility Testing
Volunteers for CLSI’s Subcommittee on Antifungal Susceptibility Tests collaborate to develop standards and guidelines that promote accurate antifungal susceptibility testing and appropriate reporting.
Individuals from the following areas join together to pool knowledge, expertise, and viewpoints:
- Microbiology laboratories
- Government agencies
- Health care providers and educators
- Pharmaceutical and diagnostic microbiology manufacturers
In this way, the interests of the professions, government, and industry remain balanced and aimed at a single common interest—quality medical testing.
Epidemiological Cutoff Value Raw Data Submission — The Working Group on Antifungal Epidemiological Cutoff Values is requesting submission of raw antifungal susceptibility testing data for yeasts and filamentous fungi using the protocols provided in the most current editions of CLSI documents M27 and M38.
ECOFFinder — Microsoft Excel spreadsheet calculator designed to estimate epidemiological cutoff values (ECVs, ECOFFs) for the minimal inhibitory concentrations or minimal effective concentrations of wild-type bacterial or fungal populations.
