Detection of extended spectrum beta lactamases
in members of the family Enterobacteriaceae: comparision of the MAST DD test, the double disc and Etest ESBL.
This prospective study was set out to determine the prevalence of Amp C beta lactamases
in urinary isolates of Escherichia coli (E.coli), and to evaluate the sensitivity, specificity and over all efficiency of a variety of phenotypic methods based on simple techniques for the detection of Amp C beta lactamases
in these isolates.

Survey beta lactamase
production and resistance pattern into beta lactame antibiotics in Bacillus cereus strain isolated from staff hands and hospital environment in Iran.
Prevalence of extended spectrum beta lactamase
producing gram negative bacteria in a tertiary care hospital.
The present study was conducted in Microbiology Laboratory of Pathology Department, Post Graduate Medical Institute, Lahore to determine frequency of ESBLs and Amp C beta lactamase
producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae isolated from neonatal sepsis in a tertiary care hospital Lahore.
Beta lactams are for example broken down by beta lactamases
. There is a whole host of beta lactamases
, and new ones seem to be discovered every day.
For amplification of beta lactamases
we used two sets of primers for TEM and SHV genes.
Detection of Amp-C beta lactamase
producing bacteria is essential in order to establish adequate antibiotic therapy and to achieve encouraging clinical outcomes.
