AIM the goal of this study is to understand the phenotype characteristic of beta-lactamase enzymes producing Enterobacteriaceae, such as ESBL, AmpC, and carbapenemase. METHODS three different methods are performed to confirm those phenotypic characteristics, namely double disk diffusion method to confirm ESBL, AmpC disk test (cefoxitin-based) to confirm AmpC, and modified Hodge test to confirm carbapenemase. RESULTS using double disk diffusion method, we found 58.42% isolates are ESBL… CONTINUE READING
