Proper diagnosis of invasive aspergillosis is challenging as conventional methods lack sensitivity and are complicated due to time-consuming incubation processes. In order to meet the requirement for early diagnosis the new Aspergillus specific point-of-care test LFA-IMMYTM was evaluated with respect to the ability to accurately detect Aspergillus in broncho-alveolar fluids and sputa and to clarify the potential of cross reactivity with other fungal pathogens.
