Benchmark Laboratories offers a focused Antibiotic Resistance Panel capable of identifying six resistance genes related to the most common forms of antibiotic resistance in infections.
In a gram-negative infection, our panel identifies the genes associated with specific and broad spectrum Beta-lactamase resistance, as follows:
In a gram postive infection, our panel identifies the genes associate with methacillin and vancomycin resistance.
We chose these targets because they represent the most common forms of resistance among the most frequent forms of infections. As part of our commitment to our clinicians, we have additional genes that could be brought to bear as custom panels as other forms of resistance gain prevalence in a community.
