By comparison with agar dilution results, the E test was investigated for the ability to detect high-level aminoglycoside (gentamicin and streptomycin), ampicillin, and vancomycin resistance among strains representing six enterococcal species. For ampicillin and vancomycin, disk diffusion results also were obtained. No false high-level aminoglycoside… CONTINUE READING
