Rapid detection of methicillin-resistant staphylococci with the MS-2 system.


The ability of the updated Abbott MS-2 system to detect methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) was compared with disk agar diffusion and broth microdilution. Of the 87 MRSA isolates tested, the MS-2 system correctly detected 85 (97.7%) in 5 h. Seventy-two of the isolates were detected by disk agar diffusion within 24 h, and 15 more by 48 h… (More)
