This was the result of a positive (2+) latex agglutination (LA) test performed on a sample being tested for the presence of Candida antigen. Note the tendency of the agglutination test particles to congregate around the periphery of the agglutinated droplet. If one detects the Candida antigen in serum, one can conclude that there is a strong possibility for the presence of invasive disease, referred to as disseminated candidiasis, or Candida septicemia.
