Candida albicans

Gram-positive, single-celled, budding fungus. 

Considered the most common cause of nosocomial fungal infection such as oral and vaginal thrush, nail bed and skin infection. 

Candida albicans serves as test organisms for testing the Yeasticidal activity (limited fungicidal activity) and – in addition to the mould A. brasiliensis – the fungicidal activity of chemical disinfectants.
