Abstract

Sir, Recently, EUCAST developed a rapid antimicrobial susceptibility testing (RAST) method for direct use on positive blood culture (BC) samples, which relies on EUCAST standard disc diffusion (DD) methodology and allows inhibition zone reading within 4–8 h of BC positivity.We herein report on EUCAST RAST results for BCs consecutively collected between June 2019 and December 2019 that contained E. coli (n = 134)or K. pneumoniae (n = 66) isolates.
