Abstract

In this study, we tested the abilities of the Vitek 2, BD Phoenix, and Kirby Bauer disk diffusion tests to detect carbapenemase production in a collection of 14 Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC)-producing non-Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates. In addition, we evaluated 13 KPC-positive K. pneumoniae isolates by using each of these methods and applied both 2009 and 2010 CLSI carbapenem interpretive guidelines.
