Part Descriptions

LP266270-0   Delafloxacin
Delafloxacin (DLX), trade name Baxdela, is a fluoroquinolone antibacterial used to treat acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSIs), which include cellulitis and erysipelas, wound infections and major skin abscesses. DLX is active against a broad spectrum of microorganisms, including those resistant to other fluoroquinolones such as MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), a major cause of hospital-acquired skin infections.

LP6300-0   Gradient strip
A gradient strip is a reagent strip that contains a predefined concentration gradient of a specific antibiotic or combination of antibiotics that is used for antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) and antimicrobial resistance detection (ARD).
For AST, the result is reported in terms of the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of a specific antimicrobial that prevents the visible growth of bacteria. In LOINC, the "Gradient strip" method is used for AST gradient strips that result in an MIC result.
For ARD, the result is reported as the presence or absence of a specific enzyme or other mechanism that confers resistance, which is determined based on comparing the inhibitory concentration (IC) of a specific antimicrobial with the IC of that antimicrobial plus a resistance inhibitor. In LOINC, the "Gradient strip ARD" method is used for ARD gradient strips, which are not intended for determining individual MIC values. Source: Regenstrief LOINC
