Susceptibility testing of anaerobic bacteria

EUCAST has developed a disk diffusion method for AST of five important anaerobic species (Bacteroides spp, Prevotella spp., Fusobacterium necrophorum, Clostridium perfringens and Cutibacterium acnes).
Methodology, QC criteria and a reading guide was recently published. Breakpoints (reviewed clinical breakpoints and disk diffusion correlates) will be available in breakpoint table v 12.0 (1 January 2022). 

A web based seminar is offered for Thursday 9 December 2021 at 8AM (repeated at 1PM and 4PM) CET. More information at the end of this link.
