  • Causa
    It has been identified that isolates (enterobacteria strains) were tested with agar dilution and broth micro dilution reference method:using eucast breakpoints (mic< or =8: susceptible ; mic>16: resistant), etest pip/tazo showed a higher frequency of erroneous results, false susceptible results, when comparing to the referenced method (broth-micro dilution).The risk to patients as a result of the performance shift is the potential for reporting erroneous results for piperacillin/tazobactam; specifically false susceptible results. this risk may lead to medical intervention for the patient because the erroneous result could negatively influence the selection of antibiotic therapy.
