Abstract
The ever-expanding role of ESBL-harboring and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae in causing serious infections poses a grave public health threat because these organisms also tend to be multi-drug resistant for which very few (if any) antibiotic options remain available. Rapid detection of such pan-resistant organisms offers one of the best solutions to improve patient screening and hospital infection control practices as well as curb inappropriate antibiotic use. This review primarily discusses and compares the current state-of-the-art in culture-based and molecular methods that are commercially available for detection or screening of ESBL-harboring and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae.
