Rapid detection of carbapenemase-producing <ce:italic>Acinetobacter baumannii</ce:italic> and carbapenem-resistant <ce:italic>Enterobacteriaceae</ce:italic> using a bioluminescence-based phenotypic method

Accurate detection of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and carbapenemase-producing carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter spp. (CP-CRA) constitutes a major challenge in laboratory diagnostics. We developed a bioluminescence-based carbapenem susceptibility detection assay (BCDA) which allows...
