Panel:   Cefiderocol Verification (FDC) (Custom)
AR Bank # 0241 Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Study ID: PSA-13

Biosample Accession #: SAMN04901631

mCIM Result: Positive    
MLST: 111(Pasteur)

This panels contains isolates from other AR Bank collections/panels.

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 Screen for metallo-beta-lactamase production [Rasheed et al. Emerging Infectious Diseases. 2013. 19(6):870-878]
3 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.
Molecular Mechanisms of Resistance
Aminoglycoside aac(6')-IIc, aadA7, aph(3')-IIb
Beta-lactam IMP-1, OXA-101, OXA-395, OXA-9, PDC-3
Efflux pumps/Other mexA, mexE
Phenicols/Bicyclomycins catB7, cmlB
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.
