ERIC® Yeast Plus Patch 1009

Issue Date: 10/22/2009

Versions: ERIC® 1.0.77

Condition: An ERIC® software patch update ERICYeastPlus1009 has been issued to modify and update ERIC® 1.0.77 to accommodate yeast database changes since the release of ERIC®1.0.77. The patch should not be applied to ERIC® versions earlier than 1.0.77.

Candida dubliniensis is reported to be highly related to Candida albicans and growth at elevated temperatures has been used to distinguish these taxa. Growth at 42°C may have unreliable outcomes in many laboratories and reliable differentiation of these taxa is questionable. This patch will modify the database to accommodate this occurrence.

Solution: A software patch ERICYeastPlus1009 has been issued to update the RapID Yeast Plus database. The patch is a self-extracting application that will copy an executable ERICYeastPlus.exe to the folder on the target computer that contains the ERIC® database.
