3 3 3 3 3

Simple to test Easy to interpret Long shelflife After opening, room temperature storage (≤ 25°C) High sensitivity and specificity

Derepressed/plasmid AmpC should be suspected if: a) b) c) d)

AmpC Confirm ID kit

Combined disk test Apply one tablet of: Cefotaxime (CTX30) Cefotaxime + Cloxacillin (CTXCX) Ceftazidime (CAZ30) Ceftazidime + Cloxacillin (CAZCX). on an inoculated Mueller Hinton agar plate (McFarland 0.5).

Interpretation (combined test) Cefotaxime 30 µg CTX30

Ceftazidime 30 µg CAZ30



≥ 5mm





≥ 5mm

No AmpC activity: All zones in the combinations within 2 mm of the corresponding single agents. Note: “-“ means that the difference is irrelevant (i.e. CTXCX should not be compared with CAZ30 for the detection of AmpC)
