Rapid Polymyxin NP test for the detection of polymyxin resistance mediated by the mcr-1 / mcr-2 genes


Poirel, Laurent; Larpin, Yu; Dobias, Jan; Stephan, R; Decousser, Jean-Winoc; Madec, Jean-Yves; Nordmann, Patrice (2018). Rapid Polymyxin NP test for the detection of polymyxin resistance mediated by the mcr-1 / mcr-2 genes. Diagnostic Microbiology and Infectious Disease, 90(1):7-10.

Abstract

The Rapid Polymyxin NP test has been recently developed to rapidly detect polymyxin resistance in Enterobacteriaceae. Here we evaluated this test for detecting MCR-1/MCR-2-producing Enterobacteriaceae using a collection of 70 non-redundant strains either recovered from the environment, animals, or humans. Sensitivity and specificity were found to be 100%.
