Highlights

The Check-Points Check-MDR CT103XL panel detects 29 genes associated with antimicrobial resistance in Gram-negative bacilli isolates, including carbapenemase, extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBL), AmpC, and colistin resistance genes.

 

This is a rapid molecular test performed on Gram-negative bacterial isolates.

 

This test uses an amplification process followed by microarray detection of the reaction products using DNA extracted from bacterial cells.
