Carbapenemase Detection-Carba NP Test
NY State Approved Indicates the status of NY State approval and if the test is orderable for NY State clients.
Confirmation of carbapenemase production from pure isolates of Enterobacteriaceae
The Carba NP test is more specific than and as sensitive as the carbapenemase-modified Hodge test. If an isolate is suspected to possess KPC or NDM carbapenemase (eg, due to local epidemiology), KPC and NDM PCR (KPNRP / KPC (blaKPC) and NDM (blaNDM) in Gram-Negative Bacilli, Molecular Detection, PCR) may be preferred over the Carba NP test.
