Highlights

The Check-Points Check-MDR CT103XL panel detects 27 genes associated with antimicrobial resistance in Gram-negative bacilli isolates: Carbapenemase, ESBL, and AmpC genes.

 

This test is a rapid molecular test performed on Gram-negative bacterial isolates.

 

This test uses an amplification process followed by microarray detection of the reaction products using DNA extracted from bacterial cells.

 

This panel serves as an Epidemiological and Infection Control tool.
