  • Causa
    Biomérieux received a customer complaint regarding qc failures (diameter out of range - too high) when testing atcc strains for antibiotic susceptibility test by disk diffusion method when using mhe agar. it could be determined that the use of the medium mhe by disk diffusion method with the antibiotics belonging to cyclines and aminosides classes could potentially lead to failure to quality control test (out of range high) and false susceptible result for clinical isolates (whatever the strain that could be tested) instead of resistant results. as a result there is a potential performance issue on strain categorisation that could lead to false susceptible result for antibiotics belonging to cyclines and aminosides classes when testing patients’ samples’ for antibiotic susceptibility test by disk method using specific lots of mhe agar.
