Abstract

Introduction: The emergence and spread of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacterales (CPE) is a worldwide public health threat. Rapid and accurate detection of CPE is essential to prevent their dissemination within health care settings. The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of CIM, mCIM and mCIM with ammonium bicarbonate (mCIM-A) methods by using different interpretation criteria for detection of carbapenemases.
