Cryptococcosis is a life-threatening infection caused by Cryptococcus neoformans and C. gattii . Tests for quick detection of the cryptococcal antigen are needed. This study compares the performance of a lateral flow assay (LFA) to the latex agglutination method. Thirty-five cryopreserved positive samples (sera and cerebrospinal fluids) plus three negative sera for control have been examined. LFA does not need high-temperature incubation or enzyme pre-treatment. All the results, except for one s...
