By the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS) guidelines for antibiotic resistance testing, laboratories report isolates with a vancomycin minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 4 [mu]g/mL as susceptible, an MIC of 8-16 [mu]g/mL as having reduced (intermediate) susceptibility and an MIC of 32 [mu]g/mL or above as resistant.
The antimicrobial drug susceptibility profile was determined by incubating Mueller-Hinton agar plates at 37[degrees]C in an atmosphere containing 6% C[O.sub.2] by the disk diffusion method, according to National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards recommendations (3).

"Go into the lab and ask if they are testing for ESBLs, using National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards recommended tests such as the double disk test and Vitek ESBL test," he said in an interview.
The antimicrobial susceptibility profiles of the isolates were determined by the broth microdilution method with cation-adjusted Mueller-Hinton broth (BD Diagnostic Systems [BDDS], Sparks, MD, USA), as described in the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS, Wayne, PA, USA) (now known as the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute [CLSI]) publication M7-A6 (16).
