Abstract

We assessed the antimicrobial-inactivation capability of BacT/Alert (FA Plus and FN Plus) or Bactec (Plus Aerobic/F and Plus Anaerobic/F) media for 40 antibiotic-bacterium combinations in simulated adult blood cultures. Aside from high recovery rates (93.2% and 88.4%, respectively), we showed that at the lowest but clinically relevant antibiotic concentrations, both BacT/Alert and Bactec media recovered all the organisms tested with drugs except for Escherichia coli, which was tested in the presence of meropenem. Delayed recoveries were mainly associated with vancomycin.
