PURPOSE To analyze the resistance mechanisms in Acinetobacter species by phenotypic methods. METHODS Antibiotic susceptibility profile for 150 clinical isolates of Acinetobacte r was determined by the standard disk diffusion method. Isolates detected to be meropenem resistant were tested further by broth microdilution minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) for meropenem. The resistant isolates were also tested for metallo beta -lactamase (MBL) production by the double-disk approximation test… CONTINUE READING
