for antimicrobial susceptibility
enterobacteriaceae, for Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Ceftazidime/Avibactam (CZA 256)
Test strip for MIC determination of ceftazidime/avibactam
NEW test strips provide Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) level for antimicrobial susceptibility of Gram-negative bacteria such as Enterobacteriaceae and P. aeruginosa. This information helps support appropriate antimicrobial therapy decisions for better patient outcomes and contributes to antimicrobial stewardship.
Reliably monitor susceptibility to ceftazidime/ avibactam (Avycaz**/ Zavicefta***)
Antimicrobial susceptibility determination in as little as 16 hours
Determines exact MIC values
Antimicrobial resistance: Why responsible treatment is criticalTOP
Antimicrobial resistance is one of today’s top healthcare concerns worldwide. With the development of Multi-drug Resistant Organisms (MDRO), particularly Gram-negative bacteria, even infections that were once easy to treat can be life-threatening1. Antimicrobial stewardship – appropriate selection and use of antimicrobials – helps improve patient outcomes, prevent resistance development and preserve the effectiveness of new antimicrobials like the ceftazidime/avibactam combination drug. In this context, it’s important for clinicians to have clear and reliable information to make the best decisions for antibiotic therapy – before, during and after treatment. A key part of this is accurate and rapid antimicrobial susceptibility testing – for ceftazidime/avibactam, there’s now ETEST® Ceftazidime/Avibactam (CZA 256).
