Evaluation of the New NucliSENS EasyQ KPC Test for Rapid Detection of Klebsiella pneumoniae Carbapenemase Gene (blaKPC)
Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 05/30/2012
Spanu T et al. – Authors evaluated the bioMérieux EasyQ real–time PCR assay for blaKPC detection with 300 Enterobacteriaceae, including 29 control strains producing known carbapenemases and 271 nonreplicate clinical isolates. The EasyQ assay correctly detected all the 111 isolates harboring blaKPC genes, with no false positives, and results were available within 2 h.
