AIMS Inducible resistance to clindamycin in Staphylococcus aureus is common but not easily identified by routine testing, and can result in treatment failure if not detected. The gold standard method is the D-test described by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI). The Vitek-2 AST-P612 card contains an 'inducible clindamycin resistance' (ICR) test. We aimed to determine the accuracy of the Vitek-2 ICR test compared to the D-test. METHODS Isolates of erythromycin non… CONTINUE READING
