Introducing the Check-MDR CT103

The Check-MDR CT103 combines the resistance markers included in the Check-MDR CT101 and Check-MDR CT102 into a single test. In addition, new markers have been added which enable the distinction between two commonly encountered ESBLs: CTX-M-1 and CTX-M-15.

By simultaneously identifying the clinically prevalent carbapenemases, ESBLs and AmpCs, Check-MDR CT103 enables you to take the f...
