Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute: Performance standards for antimicrobial susceptibility testing: 20th informational supplement.
Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing: Antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) was performed onto Chocolate agar medium by modified Kirby Bauer disk diffusion method with inoculums of 0.5 McFarland standards.10 Antimicrobial disks (Oxoid, UK) of penicillin(10ug), tetracycline (30ug), erythromycin(15ug), cotrimoxazole(25ug),ciprofloxacin(5ug), cefixime (5ug), azithromycin (15ug) and ceftriaxone(30ug) were selected as per Clinical and Laboratory Standard Institute (CLSI) 2016 guideline.11Inoculated plates with the antimicrobial disks were incubated at 370C for 18-24 hours in a humid atmosphere with 5-10% CO2 provided by a candle jar.
Direct Comparison of the BD Phoenix System with the MicroScanWalkAway System for Identification and Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing of Enterobacteriaceae and Nonfermentative Gram- Negative Organisms.
We are therefore pleased to publish the New Zealand National Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Committee (NZNAC) CPE guideline, entitled "Minimum laboratory requirements for the detection of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae from clinical samples and screening specimens." This document has been endorsed by the New Zealand Microbiology Network and will be included in the New Zealand CPE Action Plan, expected for publication by the Ministry of Health in 2019.
Antimicrobial susceptibility testing was performed by using Kirby Bauer disc diffusion method.12 Bacterial suspensions were prepared in accordance with the 0.5 McFarland's turbidity standard.
Bacterial identification and antimicrobial susceptibility testing were performed using the Phoenix Automated Microbiology System (Becton Dickinson Diagnostic Systems, Sparks, MD, USA).
Antimicrobial activity tests were conducted with the agar dilution method recommended by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) and the European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (EUCAST) on mushroom EtOH, MeOH, and DCM extracts.
McNamara, "Antimicrobial susceptibility testing for Helicobacter pylori in times of increasing antibiotic resistance," World Journal of Gastroenterology, vol.
Performance standards for antimicrobial susceptibility testing. Twenty-fourth informational supplement.
Antimicrobial susceptibility testing was performed on all isolates according to modified Kirby-Bauer method and interpreted according to CLSI 2015 criteria.
For the combination of cefoperazone/sulbactam, there are no standards specified by the CLSI or the European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (EUCAST) for the sulbactam concentration to be used in agar dilution or disk diffusion tests, and interpretations usually take into account the MICs of cefoperazone.
