Each January, CLSI updates standards for antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST). It is important for clinical laboratories to incorporate the new recommendations into routine practice to optimize detection and reporting of antimicrobial resistance. In January 2015, the annual update of the M100 tables (CLSI document M100-S25) will publish. In addition, there will be updates to the standards that describe performance of disk diffusion and MIC tests in versions M02-A12 and M07-A10, respectively. Some highlights for 2015 include introduction of the carbaNP test for carbapenemases and expanded recommendations for quality control testing. These changes and several other new recommendations found in M100-S25, M02-A12 and M07-A10 will be
discussed. In addition to the webinar, an optional postprogram self-assessment
will be provided that will allow individuals to assess their knowledge regarding the
most important AST and reporting issues for 2015. Laboratories can use this
feature to augment competency assessment requirements for their staff.
