This panel contains a representative number of Neisseria species including 6 N. gonorrhoeae, 4 N. meningitidis, 17 other Neisseria species, 1 Kingella denitrificans, and 2 Moraxella catarrhalis. This will allow PHLs to have access to a rare collection of commensal Neisseria species for identification verification purposes.
This panel can be supplemented with additional Neisseria gonorrhoeae strains.
Panel ID: NID
This panel contains propagated Neisseria meningitidis isolates. This bacteria can invade the body causing serious illness such as meningitis or septicemia. Special cautions are required when handle N. menigitidis in the lab.
results provided were determined by agar dilution, also in the system already.
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: 2841-2844).
