Abstract

The i-4-1-Health project is a One Health project on the prevalence and spread of antimicrobial resistance in the human and veterinary domain in the Dutch-Belgian cross-border region. This paper describes the main components of the laboratory protocol that was developed to standardise the microbiological methods used for the detection of intestinal carriage of highly-resistant microorganisms.

Subject Areas

Antimicrobial resistance; intestinal carriage; detection; extended-spectrum beta-lactamase; carbapenem resistance; colistin resistance; ciprofloxacin resistance; vancomcin resistance; Enterobacterales; enterococci
