Paul Schreckenberger, PhD, D(ABMM), F(AAM)

During this session participants will learn about the five most common mechanisms of carbapenem resistance and the laboratory approaches for detection of carbapenemase producing organisms. The methods discussed will include readily available, easy to perform phenotypic methods as well as more sophisticated molecular techniques. At the conclusion, laboratories will be able to assess their readiness for detecting mechanisms responsible for carbapenem resistance.
