    Abstract

    © 2016. A local predominance of carbapenemase producing Enterobacteriaceae with low minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) to meropenem prompted a review of methods available for carbapenemase detection. We report on results using two selective media, temocillin discs, CarbaNP test, GeneXpert Carba-R assay and an in-house PCR assay.
