Rapid, efficient, and clinically applicable phenotypic methods are needed for their detection. This study examines the phenotypic behavior of β-lactam-resistant Gram-negative bacteria grown on ChromID ESBL medium with ertapenem, cefoxitin, and cefepime disks, reports on the coloration of colonies, and establishes a halo diameter breakpoint for the detection of carbapenemase-producing bacteria.
Ceftolozane/Tazobactam: A New Option in the Treatment of Complicated Gram-Negative Infections
We studied β-lactam-resistant Gram-negative microorganisms 77 with extended spectrum beta lactamase ESBL97 with carbapenemases, and 12 with AmpC β-lactamases AmpC.
Susceptibility profiles of Gram-negative bacteria that produced ESBL, AmpC, and carbapenemases were similar to the expected profiles, with some differences in the response to cefepime of ESBL-producing microorganisms. In the screening of carbapenemase production, inhibition halo diameter breakpoints for antibiotic resistance were 18 mm for Enterobacterales and ertapenem, 18 mm for Pseudomonas and cefepime, and 16 mm for Acinetobacter baumannii and cefepime.
This innovative phenotypic approach is highly relevant to clinical laboratories, combining cef 3 prosztatitis profiles with detection by coloration of high-priority resistant microorganisms such as carbapenemase-producing A.

Introduction The increasing resistance to antibiotics is a major worldwide health problem, and the WHO has highlighted the threat posed by extended-spectrum β-lactamase ESBL -producing Enterobacteriaceae and carbapenemase-producing Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Enterobacteriaceae [ 1 ].
Simple, rapid, effective, and inexpensive techniques are needed to screen for the presence of these pathogens in the digestive tract of infected patients and their contacts [ 2 ]. However, the diagnostic performance may be improved by considering a higher halo breakpoint 16 mm and replacing imipenem with ertapenem ERT.
ERT has a higher activity against ESBL-producing Enterobacterales but a lower activity against carbapenemase-producing Enterobacterales in comparison to imipenem [ 6 ].
Available as Tablets Cefixime is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, which means that it is active against a wide variety of bacteria. It is used to treat short-term acute bacterial infections such as urinary tract infections, chest and throat infectionsand ear infections. Cefixime treats an infection by killing the bacteria that are causing it.
This is why it is used after halo diameter analysis to screen for carbapenemase-producing Enterobacterales with or without ESBL. In contrast, Pseudomonas spp. For its part, FEP has high antimicrobial potency against these bacteria [ 8 ] and is useful, after studying the halo diameter for Pseudomonas spp.

Tests that use cultures to detect colonies of resistant microorganisms offer an advantage over PCR tests because they detect viable microorganisms.
Unfortunately, no commercial culture tests are available to simultaneously detect Gram-negative microorganisms with different mechanisms of resistance to β-lactam antibiotics.
With the above background, the objective of this study was to evaluate the behavior of these microorganisms, which have resistance mechanisms attributed to β-lactamases, in the ChromID® ESBL medium, using the method of antibiogram by diffusion with FOX, CEF, and ERT disks to screen for this resistance.
A further aim was to determine the optimal CEF and ERT halo diameters to screen for carbapenemases, which constitute the main resistance mechanism for Pseudomonas, Acinetobacter, and Enterobacterales.
