Event Description
On 18-feb-2020, a customer in (b)(6) notified biomérieux of an mic underestimation (false intermediate) for meropenem when testing a klebsiella pneumoniae patient isolate with etest® meropenem (ref. 513800, lot 1007496370). Vitek® 2 ast testing gave meropenem resistant results (mic >8) on two (2) different ast card types, while the impacted lot of etest® meropenem obtained a mic value
3 mg/l, intermediate. The customer performed pcr testing of the strain and obtained a ndm (carbapenemase) positive result. Colistin was resistant. The isolate has been sent to a reference laboratory for carbapenemase testing; no results have been provided by the customer. 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. A biomérieux internal investigation will be initiated.
