The MicroScan Rapid Neg MIC/Combo panels and autoSCAN-W/A (Walk Away) system utilize automated fluorescence technology for rapid antimicrobial susceptibility testing of Gram-negative bacilli. In a three site clinical study eleven antimicrobial agents were evaluated by comparing results obtained with 741 clinical isolates, using rapid fluorogenic expanded dilution MIC panels and corresponding frozen microdilution reference panels determined visually. Results for 31%, 40%, 12% and 9% of the… CONTINUE READING
