Panel:   Shigella sonnei and Shigella flexneri (SHG)
AR Bank # 0879 Shigella sonnei
Study ID: SHG-09

Biosample Accession #: SAMN11031523


Collection Year:

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).

Panel:  Shigella sonnei and Shigella flexneri (SHG)

Molecular Mechanisms of Resistance
Aminoglycoside aadA1, aadA5, aph(3')-Ib, aph(6)-Id
Beta-lactam blaTEM-1B
Macrolide-Lincosamide-Streptogramin erm(B), mph(A)
Sulfonamides sul1, sul2
Tetracyclines tet(A)
Trimethoprim dfrA1, dfrA17
The resistance mechanisms listed were identified by analysis of whole genome sequence using ResFinder 3.0 database. For resistance determinant detection, 90% sequence identity and 60% sequence coverage was used. 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.
