Nocardia Susceptibility Broth
•Nocardia Susceptibility Testing
•AFB Susceptibility Testing
•Susceptibility Testing, Nocardia
Determine the susceptibility of Nocardia species and/or other aerobic Actinomycetes isolates to a profile of antimicrobial agents. Routine susceptibility testing of Nocardia isolates is recommended since the Nocardia genus contains a heterogeneous group of organisms that has variable antibiotic susceptibilities.
Susceptibility testing for amikacin, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, ceftriaxone, ciprofloxacin, clarithromycin, imipenem, linezolid, minocycline, sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim (SxT), and tobramycin. MIC values will be reported with CLSI interpretive comments.
actinomycetes isolated from a primary clinical specimen, on a submitted conventional solid medium (ie, Lowenstein-Jensen [LJ] slant, Sabouraud dextrose [SAB] slant, or similar).
Pure culture isolate on a conventional solid medium.
Conventional medium, tightly sealed, in etiologic agent packaging.
Maintain media at room temperature.
Broken transport tube or vial; specimen received in expired transport medium; mixed culture; unlabeled culture or name discrepancy between specimen and request label.
