CRE control strains for the detection of Carbapenem resistant Enterobacteriaceae available from TCS Biosciences Ltd

Carbapenem resistant Enterobacteriaceae are a significant and growing problem worldwide, with few treatment options currently available or likely to emerge in the near future. The identification of carriers, and subsequent infection control measures, are critical in limiting the increased mortality and length of hospital stay due to these bacteria.

Various methods for detection of these bacteria and confirmation of the resistance mechanisms are available, and choice will depend on local CRE prevalence data and the availability of instrumentation. Whatever the methodology employed, EUCAST and PHE-recommended control organisms are now available to detect problems or to reassure users that they are obtaining reliable results in line with expectations.
