Etest cannot be recommended for in vitro susceptibility testing of mucorales

, : Etest cannot be recommended for in vitro susceptibility testing of mucorales. Antimicrobial Agents and ChemoTherapy 59(6): 3663-3665

Amphotericin B and posaconazole susceptibility patterns were determined for the most prevalent Mucorales, following EUCAST (European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing) broth microdilution guidelines. In parallel, Etest was performed and evaluated against EUCAST. The overall agreement of MICs gained with Etest and EUCAST was 75.1%; therefore, Etest cannot be recommended for antifungal susceptibility testing of Mucorales. Amphotericin B was the most active drug against Mucorales species in vitro, while the activities of posaconazole were more restricted.
