Description

Interpreting MIC and zone diameter data from in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility tests (AST) of bacteria from aquatic animals can be extremely challenging for a multitude of reasons. These challenges can range from a complete lack of historical comparative data, to figuring out how to use interpretive criteria targeted for human and terrestrial animal application. Other contributing factors include a lack of standardized testing methods with quality control and inconsistent method performance. AST data serve two purposes: 1) to detect the emergence of resistant bacteria in a patient, population, or environment, or 2) to guide the selection of appropriate antimicrobial therapy. Current antimicrobial testing methods for a wide-range of aquatic bacteria will be reviewed, as well as a recommended approach to interpret results and get the most accurate data interpretation possible.

Objectives

Primary Learning Objectives
Become familiar with the most current standardised and recommended in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility testing methods available for aquatic bacteria and where to locate them.
Understand how to conduct antimicrobial resistance surveillance in your laboratory.Understand how to establish epidemiological cut-off values (ECVs or ECOFFs) and clinical breakpoints for an aquatic animal bacterial pathogen.
