We compared MIC test strip (MTS) and Sensititre YeastOne (SYO) methods with EUCAST and CLSI methods for amphotericin B, 5-fluocytosine, fluconazole, voriconazole, and isavuconazole against 106 Cryptococcus neoformans isolates. The overall essential agreement between the EUCAST and CLSI methods was >72% and >94% at +/-1 and +/-2 dilutions, respectively. The essential agreements between SYO and EUCAST/CLSI for amphotericin B, 5-flucytosine, fluconazole, and voriconazole were >89/>93% and between MTS and EUCAST/CLSI were >57/>75%. Very major error rates were low for amphotericin B and fluconazole (<3%) and a bit higher for the other drugs (<8%).
