Morphological, biochemical and serological identification and antibiotic susceptibility
testing of the isolates was carried out as per CLSI 2011 guidelines.
In our study, bacteria isolated from various samples received in the Microbiology Laboratory from OPDs, IPDs and ICU obtained from these patients and their antibiotic susceptibility
pattern was studied.
Certain BioMAaAaAeA@rieux products and reagents will now be available throu McKesson including VIDAS BoRoAoHoMoS PCT run on VIDAS 3 for guided antibiotic therapy in sepsis and lower respiratory-tract infections; BACT/ALERT and FAN Plus Media that optimizes time to detection and microorganism recovery and VITEK 2 for same day microbial identification and antibiotic susceptibility
6 Card for determining the antibiotic susceptibility
of gram-positive bacteria from the group Staphylococcus spp, Enterococcus spp for Vitek 2 Compact 30 or the equivalent
Most phenotypic and genotypic antibiotic susceptibility
tests are too slow to guide treatment, ranging from 2 days to 1 hour.
Merlin said its product and service offerings in the field of antibiotic susceptibility
testing complement the Maldi Biotyper system for fast and efficient microbial identification.
Objectives: To identify frequency of uropathogenic Escherichia coli and its antibiotic susceptibility
cepacia isolates obtained from blood samples of patients and environmental samples of same or different ICUs exhibited variable antibiotic susceptibility
pattern, thus indicating circulation of different bacterial strains.
The antibiotic susceptibility
pattern of each isolate was checked as per Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) guidelines using Kirby-Bauer's disc diffusion method.
2,7,8] Therefore, this study was conducted with the aim of finding the biotype, serotype and antibiotic susceptibility
pattern of V cholerae isolates encountered in our area.
Standardisation and verification of antibiotic susceptibility
data for selected organisms of concern.
However, the antibiotic susceptibility
of P aeruginosa to these drug classes is variable and unpredictable.
