Expert consensus protocol on carbapenem resistance detection and characterisation for the survey of carbapenem- and/or colistin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae

protocol

This expert consensus protocol for carbapenem resistance detection and characterisation was jointly developed by the EURGenCCRE consortium, the scientific advisory board for EURGen-Net and ECDC to agree upon the protocol for phenotypic and genotypic carbapenem resistance detection and confirmation to be used for the CCRE survey. The primary objective of the CCRE survey is to determine the occurrence, geographic distribution and population dynamics within the healthcare setting of high-risk CCRE clones and/or transmissible resistance/genetic elements of critical public health importance in Europe in order to enable informed risk assessment and control policies.
