CLSI Publishes a Revised Microbiology Document

From the press release:

“The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) has published a revised document titled Methods for Antimicrobial Dilution and Disk Susceptibility Testing of Infrequently Isolated or Fastidious Bacteria (M45-Ed3).This guideline informs clinical, public health, and research laboratories on susceptibility testing of infrequently isolated or fastidious bacteria that are not included in CLSI documents M02, M07, or M100. Antimicrobial agent selection, test interpretation, and quality control are discussed.
“Susceptibility testing is particularly necessary in situations in which the etiological agent belongs to a bacterial species for which resistance to commonly used antimicrobial agents has been documented, or could arise. The intent of this document revision is to assist labs in determining an approach for testing that is relevant to their individual practice settings.”
