A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Les salmonelles majeures (sérotype typhi et sérotype paratyphi) sont responsables des fièvres typhoïde et paratyphoïde chez l'homme uniquement ; les salmonelles mineures (sérotype typhimurium et sérotype enteritidis) sont impliquées dans 30 à 60 % des gastroentérites et toxiinfections d'origine alimentaire.

AIM OF THE STUDY: Vitek-2™ AIX versus Vitek-2™ PC have different rules for phenotypic interpretation. The aim of this study is to ensure that the raw results determined by these two versions of Vitek-2™ allow biologists to conclude to the same resistance phenotype, but also to evaluate their own phenotypic interpretation system (advanced expert system).

MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 251 strains of Enterobacteriaceae of different groups and phenotypes was tested. Each strain was studied simultaneously on both types of Vitek-2™ from the same calibrated inoculum. We then compared their resistance phenotype to beta-lactams.

RESULTS: For strains not producing ESBL or CHN, the biologist concluded in 99.3% of cases to the same resistance phenotype by interpreting the raw results of Vitek-2™ AIX versus PC. The phenotypic interpretation of biologist is different from the Vitek-2™ in respectively 40% versus 43% of cases for AIX and PC versions. For multi-resistant strains, the biologist concluded in 100% of cases to the same resistance phenotype by interpreting the raw results of Vitek-2™ AIX versus PC. In 51.5% of cases the biologist use the disk diffusion method (DD). The results of this technique put forward 29% discrepancy with the two types of Vitek-2™. Finally, when Vitek-2™ claims the presence of an ESBL alone, this result is routinely confirmed by DD.

CONCLUSION: The switch from Vitek-2™ AIX to Vitek-2™ PC does not alter the results of the phenotypic interpretation of biologist.
