Candida auris ITS2 gene [Presence] in Specimen by NAA with probe detection
Qualitative results for the detection of internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) region of the ribosomal gene in Candida auris DNA from clinical specimens, including swabs from nasal, axilla, and groin as well as from various surfaces in clinical settings. The test is used for rapid screening of C. auris in order to control and prevent its spread in the healthcare facilities. This term was created for, but not limited in use to, the New York Public Health lab's real-time PCR assay, which detects C. auris and related species: Candida duobushaemulonii, Candida haemulonii, and Candida lusitaniae.

LP262557-4 Candida auris ITS2 gene
In Candida auris, the internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) region is located in the ribosomal gene. Assays targeting the ITS2 region have been developed to control and prevent the spread of C. auris and related species in healthcare settings. (http://jcm.asm.org/content/early/2017/05/18/JCM.00630-17) C. auris is an emerging multidrug-resistant yeast causing healthcare-associated infections with high mortality worldwide. PMID: 27634564 C. auris can survive on the exterior body (skin, hair, etc.) and on surfaces in the environment, causing transmission of C. auris from patient to patient. Some C. auris strains are resistant to all three major classes of antifungal drugs, which has not been reported before in other species of Candida.[CDC:fungal/diseases/candidiasis/candida-auris] Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
