Rapid detection of extended-spectrum-β-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in blood cultures using the ESBL NDP test in Cotonou, Benin.

Abstract

PURPOSE Rapid and inexpensive tests for detecting extended-spectrum-β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae are needed, particularly in low-resource countries where infections with these bacteria constitute a major public health issue. The recently described ESBL NDP test performed well in developed countries. This study was designed to assess… (More)
