We have compared three rapid systems for the identification of Enterobacteriaceae: MS-2, Rapid 20E, Micro-ID. These methods allows to identifications of bacteria within 4-5 hours. We have chosen API 20E as reference system; because it is normally used in the clinical microbiology laboratories. We have noted good agreement of concordance for MS-2, Micro-ID(More)
Environmental information is valuable for monitoring and remediation efforts only if the location and time of acquisition are recorded in parallel with other parameters such as temperature, pH, pCO2 etc. Similarly, environmental information must be searchable and retrievable on the basis of geolocation and time of acquisition as well as other parameters(More)
Two different sensitivity testing methods were evaluated on 183 bacterial strains of Gram-negative clinical isolates in relation to 13 antimicrobial drugs. Comparison between both methods: conventional technique of disk diffusion (Kirby-Bauer) and the automated ABAC breakpoints system, has shown a good agreement of the results (91.1%) according to several(More)
The in vitro activity of sisomicin, gentamicin, tobramycin and amikacin, four similar aminoglycosides, has been determined against 135 bacterial strains of Gram-negative bacilli representing 4 genera of common pathogens isolated from urinary tract infections. Comparison between three methods of antibiotic susceptibility tests: agar diffusion by Kirby-Bauer,(More)
