Part Descriptions

LP248277-8   Bacterial carbapenem resistance blaVIM gene
Verona integron-encoded metallo-β-lactamase (VIM) is part of a growing family of carbapenemases and includes at least 10 members. VIMs are one of the most common types of carbapenemases, with many variants in at least 23 species of Gram-negative bacilli from more than 40 regions of the world. [PMID:21449842] Studies have shown that a high percentage of patients with immunodeficiency and drug resistant nosocomial infections are infected with a VIM or IMP producing organism, particularly when the organism identified is Pseudomonas aeruginosa.[PMID:27563634] The two genes are often present together although they can also be present individually. Identifying the presence of these genes is important in monitoring drug resistance and determining the best antibiotic therapy methods. [PMID:28085553] Source: Regenstrief LOINC

LP265773-4   Bacterial ABXBACT probe.amp.tar
PCR-based Methods for bacterial susceptibility are similar to genotyping for viral susceptibility, in that resistance or susceptibility is inferred based on the presence or absence of specific genetic information that is known to encode resistance to a specific antibiotic or group of antibiotics. For bacteria, resistance is often conferred by genes that are carried on plasmids, which can be transferred from one species to another. These genes encode proteins that specifically inhibit certain antibiotics, such as carbapenems or aminoglycosides. Source: Regenstrief LOINC
