Using a rapid bacterial lysis method, the Check MDR CT103 and CT103 XL microarrays demonstrated accuracies of 98.1% and 94.2%, respectively, for detection of known resistance genes in 108 multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacilli. In 45 isolates, 49 previously unrecognized extended-spectrum β-lactamase or plasmid AmpC targets were detected and confirmed by conventional PCR.
