Resumo
The performance of EasyQ KPC assay was evaluated for the first time for bla(KPC) detection directly from surveillance rectal swabs without broth enrichment. Using conventional polymerase chain reaction as gold standard method, EasyQ KPC and culture-based molecular tests demonstrated a sensitivity/specificity of 100%/87.3% and 83.3%/98.2%, respectively.
