Abstract MALDI-TOF MS has been evaluated to detect carbapenemases activity and pathogen identification directly from positive blood cultures. 21 non-carbapenemase producers and 19 carbapenemase producers Enterobacteriaceae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains were included in the study. This technique is simple and detects carbapenemases in 4.5 h with high sensitivity and specificity.

Abstract The biochemical-based Carba NP test has been evaluated to detect carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae ( n = 193) directly from spiked blood cultures. It was able to rapidly detect KPC ( n = 50), IMP ( n = 27), VIM ( n = 37), NDM ( n = 33) and OXA-48-like producers ( n = 46) with sensitivity and specificity of 97.9% and 100%, respectively. This cost-effective technique may be implemented in any microbiology laboratory and offers a reliable test for an early identification of carbap...

We have evaluated a matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization–time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) method for the identification of carbapenemases and for distinguishing metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs). A total of 49 noncarbapenemase-producing and 14 carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa clinical strains, previously characterized by PCR, were included in the study. With MALDI-TOF MS, the presence of carbapenemases was confirmed by the detection of ertapen...

The identification of pathogens directly from blood cultures by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization–time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) can be a valuable tool for improving the treatment of patients with sepsis and bacteremia. However, the increasing incidence of multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria makes it difficult to predict resistance patterns based only on pathogen identification. Most therapy regimens for sepsis caused by Gram-negative rods consist of at least on...

Abstract Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization–time-of-flight mass spectrometry assay was able to detect carbapenemase producers, including SIM-1 or OXA-51, within 4 hours using 20 μL of 0.5 g/L ertapenem solution as a substrate. This assay is more rapid and accurate than the modified Hodge test and 3-dimensional extract bioassay. Hence, it can be used an alternative test to identify carbapenemase-mediated carbapenem resistance in Gram-negative bacteria.

SUMMARY Within the past decade, clinical microbiology laboratories experienced revolutionary changes in the way in which microorganisms are identified, moving away from slow, traditional microbial identification algorithms toward rapid molecular methods and mass spectrometry (MS). Historically, MS was clinically utilized as a high-complexity method adapted for protein-centered analysis of samples in chemistry and hematology laboratories. Today, matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization–time of...

Plasmid-acquired carbapenemases in Enterobacteriaceae, which were first discovered in Europe in the 1990s, are now increasingly being identified at an alarming rate. Although their hydrolysis spectrum may vary, they hydrolyse most β-lactams, including carbapenems. They are mostly of the KPC, VIM, NDM and OXA-48 types. Their prevalence in Europe as reported in 2011 varies significantly from high (Greece and Italy) to low (Nordic countries). The types of carbapenemase vary among countries, partial...

Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC)producing Enterobacteriaceae are endemic in New York City hospitals and have been associated with serious infections globally. A real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay was developed to detect carbapenem resistance attributable to KPC from blood culture bottles positive for gram-negative bacilli. Culture confirmation of carbapenemase production included automated imipenem and meropenem susceptibility testing and ertapenem susceptibility testing...

Multidrug-resistant Enterobacterales (MDRE) are an emerging threat to global health, leading to rising health care costs, morbidity and mortality. Multidrug-resistance is commonly caused by different β-lactamases (e.g., ESBLs and carbapenemases), sometimes in combination with other resistance mechanisms (e.g., porin loss, efflux). The continuous spread of MDRE among patients in hospital settings and the healthy population require adjustments in healthcare management and routine diagnostics. Rapi...

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the most challenging threats in public health; thus, there is a growing demand for methods and technologies that enable rapid antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST). The conventional methods and technologies addressing AMR diagnostics and AST employed in clinical microbiology are tedious, with high turnaround times (TAT), and are usually expensive. As a result, empirical antimicrobial therapies are prescribed leading to AMR spread, which in turn cause...

We validate and evaluate a new phenotypic assay, named direct β-lactam inactivation method (dBLIM), for the rapid and simultaneous detection of carbapenemase or extended-spectrum-cephalosporinase activity directly from Enterobacterales (EB) positive blood cultures (BCs). It originates from the carbapenem inactivation method (CIM), an inexpensive and highly sensitive assay for carbapenemase activity detection. dBLIM cut off values to detect ESBL and carbapenemase activity resulted ≤ 12mm for 5 μg...

Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) is today the reference method for direct identification of microorganisms in diagnostic laboratories, as it is notably time- and cost-efficient. In the context of increasing cases of enteric diseases with emerging multi-drug resistance patterns, there is an urgent need to adopt an efficient workflow to characterize antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Current approaches, such as antibiograms, are time-consumin...
