Event Description
A customer from the united states notified biomérieux of discrepant meropenem susceptible results when testing klebsiella pneumonia strains isolated from a patient's sample using etest® method (ref. 513848, lot 1007583220). The customer stated they inoculated the suspension of the microorganism isolated from the patient's sample into biomérieux mhe agar and applied the meropenem etest strip lot 1007583220; after incubation the customer obtained a meropenem mic value of 0. 25 g/ml, categorizing the strain to be susceptible to this antimicrobial agent. The customer mentioned that a suspension of the same microorganism isolated for the same patient's was tested for antibiotic susceptibility test using vitek® 2 ast-gn79 test kit (ref. 413436) and a mic >16 g/ml was obtained that categorized the strain to be resistant to meropenem. The customer also performed carbanp test for carbapenemase detection and a positive result was obtained; this is not consistent with the susceptible result to meropenem. There is no indication or report from the laboratory that the discrepant result led to any adverse event related to the patient's state of health.
