Chromogenic chromID® CARBA medium was compared with CDC method and MacConkey agar with imipenem for its performance in detecting carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) during a faecal screening surveillance program. Double rectal swabs were collected from patients hospitalized in the ICU. One swab was inoculated onto the solid media chromID® CARBA and MacConkey agar with imipenem, while the other was tested according to CDC protocol. Suspected colonies from all procedures were… CONTINUE READING
