Anaerobe Antimicrobial Panels

Slide 27

However, we do utilize the antimicrobials in various panels for different organisms.  For instance, Anaerobic gram-negative bacilli which are beta-lactamase positive are tested using Pipericillin/tazobactam, clindamycin, metronidazole, and ertapenem.  Clostridia other than Clostridium perfringens receive testing with Pepericillin/tazobactam, clindamycin, metronidazole, ertapenem, and penicillin.  Anaerobic Cocci and nonsporing gram-positive bacilli with the exception of actinomyces are tested using clindamyciin, metronidazole, and penicillin.  Propionibacteria are tested with moxifloxacin, minocycline, and penicillin.
