Title: GENETIC TESTING FOR PREDICTING RESISTANCE OF ENTEROBACTER SPECIES AGAINST ANTIMICROBIAL AGENTS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method of determining an infection of a patient with Enterobacter species potentially resistant to antimicrobial drug treatment, a method of selecting a treatment of a patient suffering from an antibiotic resistant Enterobacter infection, and a method of determining an antibiotic resistance profile for bacterial microorganisms of Enterobacter species, as well as computer program products used in these methods. In an exemplary method, a sample (1), is used for molecular testing (2), and then a molecular fingerprint (3) is taken. The result is then compared to a reference library (4), and the result (5) is reported.
