I am trying to get total C.albicans counts from unstimulated saliva of
HIV+ people.
I have picked those with slight to strong evidance of white oral
candiosis leasions. My problem is that simple dilutions in saline are
showing unexpectadly low counts (<10 to 3), shouldn't we be seeing at
least 10 to 5  or 10 to 7? Our SDA plates with antibiotics have checked
out suitable and the dilution scheme is simple, any ideas on why the low

Any help would be appreciated
