    Abstract

    The Till-U-Test Candida Dermatophyte (TUT CD) culture slide, produced for the diagnosis of yeast and dermatophyte infections, was compared with microscopy and formal laboratory culture in the diagnosis of vaginal candidosis. Candida albicans grew readily on the medium and reliable results were obtained within a mean of three days' incubation at room temperature. Agreement with laboratory culture was 91 . 4%; 29% of cases would have been missed by microscopy alone. The TUT CD is a useful device, therefore, in the investigation of vaginitis.
