Expert consensus protocol on colistin resistance detection and characterisation for the survey of carbapenem- and/or colistin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae

Publication

This expert consensus protocol for colistin resistance detection and characterisation was jointly developed by the EURGenCCRE consortium, the scientific advisory board for EURGen-Net and ECDC to agree upon the best available strategy for phenotypic and genotypic colistin-resistance detection and confirmation to be used for the CCRE survey. A separate expert consensus protocol was also developed for carbapenem resistance detection and characterisation, as well as a laboratory manual with detailed methodological information for characterisation of CCRE isolates.

The primary objective of the CCRE survey is to determine the occurrence, geographic distribution and population dynamics within healthcare settings of high-risk CCRE clones, and/or transmissible resistance/genetic elements of critical public health importance in Europe, in order to enable informed risk assessment and control policies.
