Prospective evaluation of imipenem/EDTA combined disc and etest
for detection of metallo-beta-lactamaseproducing pseudomonas aeruginosa.
gonorrhoeae by using the API NH test kit (bioMerieux, Marcy l'Etoile, France), and the MICs for azithromycin, ceftriaxone, and cefixime was assessed by Etest
(bioMerieux) on GC II agar supplemented with 1% IsoVitaleX (bioMerieux).
So, the Etest
method was used to confirm the colistin MICs and reduce the possibility of errors.
12 No interpretive criteria No given interpretation CLSI: Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute; MIC: minimal inhibitory concentration tested by Etest
methodology performed by Mayo Medical Laboratory.
Susceptibility to vancomycin was determined in all isolates with Etest
(bioMerieux, Marcy l'Etoile, France) and broth microdilution (Probac do Brasil, Sao Paulo, Brasil).
evaluation of the three hyper-penicillinase strains produced penicillin MIC levels of 1mg/L and an ampicillin MIC of 1mg/L for two isolates and a value of 2mg/L for the remaining isolate.
Evaluation of antifungal susceptibility testing with microdilution and Etest
methods of Candida blood isolates.
There was no difference in the Etest
set up on the isolate after one week exposure to LSMMG when compared to the 1XG Etest
The strengths of Etest
, our secondary system, lie in its flexibility, full dilution MIC, and application for difficult organisms or clinical situations.
The main benefit of the eTest
application is the high efficiency of assessment process of students' knowledge, especially in the case of high quantity of students.
Susceptibility testing to estimate MIC was determined on all isolates using the Etest
pneumoniae was cultured from the blood, susceptible to penicillin (MIC as determined by Etest
