Panel:   Neisseria gonorrhoeae WHO Reference (WHO)
AR Bank # 0908 Neisseria gonorrhoeae
Study ID: WHO-P

Biosample Accession #: Biosample Accession data is not yet available.

   

β-Lactamase: Negative*
Reference strain No. WHO-P

MIC results provided were determined by agar dilution.

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).

Molecular Mechanisms of Resistance
CategoryGene
 
Disclaimer:
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.
Propagation
MEDIUM
Medium: GC agar base and 1% defined growth supplement

GROWTH CONDITIONS
Temperature: 36°C
Atmosphere: 5% CO₂

PROPAGATION PROCEDURE

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 GC agar

Use streak plate method to isolate single colonies

Incubate inverted plate at 36°C ± 1°C in 5% CO₂ for 20-24 hrs.
