Panel:   Plazomicin (PLZ)
AR Bank # 0848 Klebsiella pneumoniae
Study ID: PLZ-18

Biosample Accession #: SAMN11953898

MLST: ST395(Pasteur)

MICs obtained by broth microdilution. Modal MIC is reported.

MIC results for each antimicrobial agent for an isolate may commonly be ± 1 log2 (doubling dilution) different than what is posted on the FDA & CDC AR Bank website because this is the normal technical variability of antimicrobial susceptibility testing (see J. H. Jorgensen. 1993. J Clin Microbiol. Vol 31[11]: 2841-2844).

1 Reflects MIC of first component
2 Based on FDA break points
3 Screen for metallo-beta-lactamase production [Rasheed et al. Emerging Infectious Diseases. 2013. 19(6):870-878]
4 Clinical and PK/PD data demonstrate colistin has limited clinical efficacy, even if an intermediate result is obtained. Alternative agents are strongly preferred. Colistin should be used in combination with one or more active antimicrobial agents. Consultation with an infectious disease specialist is recommended.
Device manufacturers and users of FDA cleared devices shall consult the FDA’s Antibacterial Susceptibility Test Interpretive Criteria       website for breakpoints recognized or recommended by FDA, and for information regarding FDA exceptions or additions to the applicable, recognized consensus standard.

Antimicrobial Resistance (AR) gene prediction was performed using a combined and deduplicated AR database (ResGANNCBI) from ARG-ANNOT, ResFinder and NCBI AMRFinder accessed on 2022-09-15. AR drug classes are assigned according to these databases. This analysis does not include mutations that may result in antimicrobial resistance, or resistance determinants added to newer versions of databases used, or other antimicrobial resistance gene databases. Additional AR genes other than those listed, may be present. For resistance determinant detection, 99-100% sequence identity and 100% sequence coverage from GAMMA and SRST2 was used. GAMMA uses amino acid sequence to assign gene alleles from assemblies; SRST2 uses nucleotide sequence to assign gene alleles from sequencing reads. Biosample accession numbers have been provided so that users can analyze the data on their own, if so desired. *MLST Type (and scheme), as determined by Torsten Seemann's MLST program. For Enterobacterales the Pasteur MLST schemes are used except for E. coli for which both the Pasteur and Achtman schemes are reported. Similarly, for Acinetobacter baumannii complex, both Pasteur and Oxford MLST schemes are used and reported. SUB=novel MLST identified and "submitted". Dash (-) indicates no pubMLST scheme is available for that species.
Medium: Trypticase Soy Agar with 5% Sheep Blood (BAP)

Temperature: 35°C
Atmosphere: Aerobic


Remove the sample vial to a container with dry ice or a freezer block. Keep vial on ice or block. (Do not let vial content thaw)

Open vial aseptically to avoid contamination

Using a sterile loop, remove a small amount of frozen isolate from the top of the vial

Aseptically transfer the loop to BAP

Use streak plate method to isolate single colonies

Incubate inverted plate at 35°C ± 2°C for 18-24 hrs.
