Abstract

This study evaluated and compared the accuracy of BCID2 with that of BCID to identify bacterial species and relative antimicrobial resistance genes directly from positive BCs. We used archived samples from positive BCs (1.5 ml thereof mixed with 100 ml of dimethyl sulfoxide and stored at 280°C), which had prospectively been processed with the BD Bactec 9240 (BD Diagnostic Systems, Sparks, MD), BacTAlert 3D (bioMérieux), or BacTAlert Virtuo (bioMérieux) system at two hospital microbiology laboratories from January 2018 to August 2020.
