Antimicrobial resistance continues to emerge among a variety of different types of bacteria and laboratories must be able to accurately detect and effectively report resistance when encountered in patient’s isolates. CLSI standards guide laboratories in AST and the M100 Tables that contain recommendations for testing and reporting, interpreting results, and QC are updated annually. Some of the changes in the M100 document will be highlighted and suggestions for implementing them will be provided. The goals will be to bring participants up to date with the most recent recommendations for antimicrobial susceptibility testing and reporting and provide suggestions for how to confront some of the challenges in implementing these recommendations.
