The performance of a visual slide-based DNA-microarray for the identification of non-albicans Candida spp. was evaluated. Among 167 isolates, that had previously been identified by VITEK 2®, the agreement between the DNA-microarray and the sequencing was 97.6%. This DNA-microarray platform showed an excellent performance.
