Rapid susceptibility profiling of carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumonia
MetadataShow full item record
Â© 2017 The Author(s). The expanding global distribution of multi-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae demands faster antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) to guide antibiotic treatment. Current ASTs rely on time-consuming differentiation of resistance and susceptibility after initial isolation of bacteria from a clinical specimen. Here we describe a flow cytometry workflow to determine carbapenem susceptibility from bacterial cell characteristics in an international K. pneumoniae isolate collection (n = 48), with a range of carbapenemases. Our flow cytometry-assisted susceptibility test (FAST) method combines rapid qualitative susceptible/non-susceptible classification and quantitative MIC measurement in a single process completed shortly after receipt of a primary isolate (54 and 158 minutes respectively). The qualitative FAST results and FAST-derived MIC (MIC FAST ) correspond closely with broth microdilution MIC (MIC BMD , Matthew's correlation coefficient 0.887), align with the international AST standard (ISO 200776-1; 2006) and could be used for rapid determination of antimicrobial susceptibility in a wider range of Gram negative and Gram positive bacteria.
