In contrast, the disk diffusion methods with oxacillin and cefoxitin showed lower sensitivity The aim of the study described in this paper was to comparatively evaluate the traditional susceptibility testing for MRSA with PCR as the gold standard assay. Furthermore, the borderline value of zone inhibition diameters for cefoxitin might be considered as a risk, and they may give false-susceptible result. Nevertheless, some studies have shown that results clxi with such phenotypic methods are controversial. Environmental Standards and Trade Volume.

Yoktilar In contrast, the disk diffusion methods with oxacillin and cefoxitin showed lower sensitivity Laboratory identification of MRSA is crucial and essential both for initiation of appropriate antimicrobial therapies and for effective infection control strategies that are designed to limit the spread of MRSA.
Advances in MicrobiologyVol. In spite of the availability of commercial kits for MRSA detection in the market, the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute CLSI recommends the use of phenotypic methods, such as the disk diffusion method with oxacillin or with cefoxitin, as well as a serial dilution method with oxacillin.
MS23 includes a dosage regimen for imipenem for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and new information for detection of inducible clindamycin resistance using the D-zone test or broth microdilution for Streptococcus pneumoniae.
