Abstract

Carbapenemase-producing organisms (CPOs) represent an increasing threat in healthcare facilities and detection of these organisms in the diagnostic laboratory can be challenging. The EntericBio CPE (EBCPE) real-time PCR assay (Serosep Ltd) was evaluated for the detection of NDM, KPC, OXA-48-like, VIM, IMP and GES carbapenemase genes from a panel of 145 multidrug-resistant organisms (29 NDM, 35 OXA-48, 21 VIM, 4 OXA-23, 3 KPC, 5 NDM+OXA-48, 3 GES-5, 1 OXA-23+NDM, 1 IMI, 2 IMP-1 and 41 multidrug-resistant carbapenemase-negative isolates). The EBCPE assay performed well, with 100 % sensitivity and specificity for the detection of all genotypes included in the assay. Turnaround time and laboratory workflow were improved compared to culture-based assays. Users must remain aware of the limitations of molecular assays for CPO detection to ensure implementation of the most suitable CPO diagnostic pathways.
