Performance standards for antimicrobial susceptibility testing
The supplemental information presented in this document is intended for use with the antimicrobial susceptibility testing procedures published in the following Clinical and Laboratory StandardsExpand
Methods for dilution antimicrobial susceptibility tests for bacteria that grow aerobically : approved standard
This document describes standard broth dilution and microdilution and agar dilution techniques and includes a series of procedures to standardize the way the tests are performed, and the performance, applications, and limitations of the current CLSI-recommended methods are described. Expand
Antimicrobial susceptibility testing: a review of general principles and contemporary practices.
An important task of the clinical microbiology laboratory is the performance of antimicrobial susceptibility testing of significant bacterial isolates. The goals of testing are to detect possibleExpand
Linezolid resistance in a clinical isolate of Staphylococcus aureus
An MRSA isolate resistant to linezolid is characterised that was recovered from a patient treated with this agent for dialysis-associated peritonitis. Expand
Bacteremia with Streptococcus bovis and Streptococcus salivarius: clinical correlates of more accurate identification of isolates
It is concluded that careful identification of streptococcal bacteremic isolates as S. bovis biotype I provides clinically important information and should be more widely applied. Expand
Better Tests, Better Care: Improved Diagnostics for Infectious Diseases
The current diagnostic landscape, including unmet needs and emerging technologies, and the challenges to the development and clinical integration of improved tests are reviewed, and recommendations that address a host of identified barriers are presented. Expand
Multicenter Studies of Tigecycline Disk Diffusion Susceptibility Results for Acinetobacter spp
An adjustment of tigecycline disk diffusion breakpoints (susceptible/resistant) to ≥16/≤12 mm reduced intermethod errors to an acceptable level (only 9.7%, all minor). Expand
Linezolid resistance in Staphylococcus aureus: characterization and stability of resistant phenotype.
This isolate was characterized by determination of the number of mutant 23S rRNA copies, assessment of the stability of the resistant phenotype, and comparison of its growth characteristics with those of linezolid-susceptible S. aureus. Expand
