Table 4 Distribution of the 45 isolates re-tested using the CDT (43 with a ND and 2 with discrepant results between E-test and DNA-based assay)

From: A qPCR and multiplex pyrosequencing assay combined with automated data processing for rapid and unambiguous detection of ESBL-producers Enterobacteriaceae

  1. * Isolates for which genotypic and phenotypic results are discordant. Both discordant isolates and isolates for which E-test yielded a ‘ND’ result (n = 43) were re-tested using the combination disk test (CDT).
