Recently, Tijet et al. evaluated the Carba NP test (1), which we developed in order to identify carbapenemase producers. Our first study included 316 carbapenemaseand non-carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates (2, 3). Tijet et al. confirmed that this biochemical test has an excellent specificity of 100%, together with an excellent positive predictive value (PPV). However, they reported a lower sensitivity than we did (72% versus 100%), mainly due to false… CONTINUE READING
