1 Screen for metallo-beta-lactamase production [Rasheed et al. Emerging Infectious Diseases. 2013. 19(6):870-878]
2 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.
3 Reflects MIC of first component
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.
Molecular Mechanisms of Resistance
Aminoglycoside aac(6')-33, aadA1, aph(3')-IIb
Beta-lactam GES-19, GES-20, OXA-2, OXA-846, PDC-19A
Efflux pumps/Other mexA, mexE, mexX, qacEdelta1
Fosfomycin fosA
Phenicols/Bicyclomycins bcr1
Sulfonamides sul1
The resistance mechanisms listed were identified by analysis of whole genome sequence using the ResFinder database (last updated June 2, 2016 and accessed on October 25, 2016). This analysis does not include mutations that may result in antibiotic resistance or resistance determinants added to newer versions of the ResFinder database or other antimicrobial resistance gene databases. Biosample accession numbers have been provided so that users can analyze the data on their own if so desired.
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.
