Event Description
A complaint was opened by biomérieux following postmarket surveillance internal review of an article from italy, "variable performance of different commercial systems for testing carbapenem susceptibility of kpc carbapenemase-producing escherichia coli," authored by alberto antonelli, marco coppi, giulio camarlinghi, eva maria parisio, maria nardone, eleonora riccobono, tommaso giani, romano mattei and gian maria rossolini. The article noted a trend for etest® meropenem (lot # not specified) to underestimate resistance (false susceptible) when compared to the bmd method for kpc carbapenemase-producing escherichia coli patient strains. As these isolates were tested as part of this scientific study, there was no patient directly associated with the testing. Therefore, there was no adverse impact to any patient's state of health as a result of the testing. Additionally, the article contact confirmed there was no impact on patient therapy or outcome due to the results. A biomérieux internal investigation will be initiated.
