Abstract

We directly tested 484 organisms from clinical (n = 310) and simulated (n = 174) positive blood cultures using the NG-Test Carba 5 assay for carbapenemase-producing Enterobacterales detection. The assay identified all but 4 of the KPC (170/171), OXA-48-like (22/22), VIM (19/21), and NDM (14/15) producers with no false positives. Among the clinical Klebsiella pneumoniae organisms tested, 122 of 123 KPC, 1 of 1 OXA-48-like, and 1 of 2 VIM producers were detected by the assay. Some VIM and NDM producers yielded scant but still-readable bands with the assay. No organisms produced the IMPS that the assay was designed to detect.
