Susceptibility testing is especially necessary if the etiological agent is resistant, or possibly resistant, to a commonly used antimicrobial agent. Interested facilities should contact CLSI for more information, including purchasing options, on this essential document.

These methods may also be used to evaluate commercial devices for routine use. Jorgensen, PhD, chairholder of the CLSI working group that developed the document, it has long been accepted that for the most effective management of bacterial infections, laboratories must be able to determine susceptibility or resistance to therapeutic agents.

Jorgensen theorizes that clsi m45-a2 device companies may clsi m45-a2 modify their products clsi m45-a2 gain regulatory eg, FDA clearance for marketing to clinical laboratories. clsi m45-a2

CLSI is a global, nonprofit organization that clsi m45-a2 the development and clsl of voluntary consensus standards and guidelines within the health care community.

Results generated by these reference methods may in fact be used by regulatory agencies to evaluate the performance of commercial systems as part of their approval systems. M45 addresses the modifications required to test these organisms clsi m45-a2 provides expert guidance on how to interpret results, including identifying the essential breakpoints.

The performance, applications, and limitations of the current CLSI-recommended methods are described.

However, in cases such as those involving fastidious and infrequently isolated organisms for which specific guidelines do not exist, laboratorians have resorted to various alternative methods and applied breakpoints from other groups of organisms.

Close mobile search navigation Article navigation. Its encompassing nature establishes M45 as an invaluable clsi m45-a2 to various constituencies, including the clinical laboratory. For some of the organisms, a disk diffusion method is described, and this method can be easily adopted by most clinical laboratories performing clsi m45-a2 diffusion testing.

A variety of laboratory techniques can be used to measure the in vitro susceptibility of bacteria to antimicrobial agents. In such cases, in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility of the organism isolated is most likely indicated.

Jorgensen and Hindler both j45-a2 that this revised guideline is very timely, in light clsi m45-a2 the increasingly common challenges faced by laboratories performing susceptibility testing on these clsi m45-a2, including increased pressure from clinicians to provide susceptibility data quickly, and the need for reliable methods to identify emerging resistance.

These organisms include Helicobacter pyloriVibrio choleraeand potential agents of bioterrorism, adds Hindler. It also includes a series of procedures designed to standardize test performance.

Therefore, laboratories need specific guidelines on how to perform valid susceptibility testing without using the US Food and Drug Administration FDA -cleared instrumentation and commercial test systems found in most laboratories.

Clsl Description If a bacterial pathogen’s susceptibility to antimicrobial clsi m45-a2 cannot be predicted based on the identity of the organism alone, in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility testing of the isolated organism may be indicated.

This guideline is based somewhat on standardized procedures in other documents, but contains specific instructions clsi m45-a2 when and how to perform antimicrobial susceptibility testing m45-s2 fastidious or infrequently isolated organisms that might be resistant to therapy commonly prescribed through antibiotics.

However, there are instances in which the sensitivity of such a pathogen cannot be predicted simply based on the identity of the organism.

Susceptibility testing is particularly necessary in those situations in which the etiological agent belongs to a bacterial species for which resistance to commonly used antimicrobial agents has been documented, or could arise.

However, clinicians need prompt guidance clsi m45-a2 treating organisms that can cause clsi m45-a2, life-threatening infections eg, bacteremia, endocarditis, and meningitis. While comprehensive, the guideline is not prescriptive, and allows some degree of customization of criteria and policies by each clsi m45-a2 and its medical staff. Established guidelines exist for susceptibility testing clsi m45-a2 some organisms. View all product details. Not Logged In Member?: Working group member Paul C.
