Perform susceptibility testing of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) using Oxoid Meropenem/Vaborbactam MEV30 Antimicrobial Susceptibility Discs which contain the carbapenem, meropenem, and the novel beta-lactamase inhibitor, vaborbactam. The easy-to-use disk format may assist in the decision-making process of adding meropenem/ vaborbactam into your formulary.
  • Meets CLSI recommended breakpoints
  • Easy-to-use: shatterproof spring-loaded cartridges and easy-to-read labeling.
  • Long-term stability ensured: each cartridge is individually sealed with a desiccant to maintain a moisture level of <2%.
  • Accurate and reproducible: manufactured under stringent quality standards including BS EN ISO 9001:2008, ISO 13485:2003 and FDA 21 CFR part 820, with comprehensive quality control testing.
  • Qualitative: categorizes resistant, intermediate, and sensitive organisms
  • Trusted supplier: over 35 years of experience in disk development and manufacture

Meropenem/vaborbactam has been shown to be active both clinically and in vitro against:

  • Escherichia coli
  • Klebsiella pneumoniae
  • Enterobacter cloacae species complex

Disk diffusion not only categorizes resistant, intermediate, and sensitive organisms through qualitative results but also provides a visual indication of the following:

  • Inoculum level
  • Presence of contamination
  • Resistant mutants
  • Beta-lactamase activity
  • Antagonism and synergy between antibiotics

Thermo Fisher Scientific is a leader in providing AST solutions that help in the fight against antimicrobial resistance, offering high performance automated and manual test options and one of the largest, most up-to-date selections of antimicrobials for susceptibility testing.
