AAVLD Understanding and Effective Application of the Updated CLSI Standards to Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing and Interpretations

AAVLD Bacteriology and Mycology Subcommittee

Sponsored by Zoetis Animal Health

 

8:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Crown Center – Chicago B Friday, October 17, 2014 Kansas City, Mo

 

Program Description

This workshop is designed to help personnel in diagnostic laboratories understand how breakpoints are determined by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) for commonly used antimicrobial drugs in veterinary medicine. This information can then guide decisions related to application of interpretive criteria to microbroth dilution and disc diffusion results as well as aid in drug selection for treatment.

 

 

 

Topics to be covered

 

  • Data presentation for breakpoint analysis
  • Understanding and utilizing CLSI performance standards (VET01-A4 and S2)
  • Quality Control for susceptibility testing

    Speakers


    • Michael Sweeney – Principal Scientist with Zoetis. Mike is the current chair for the CLSI editorial working group.
    • Dr. Mark Papich – veterinary pharmacologist and Supervisor of the Clinical Pharmacology Laboratory at North Carolina State University. He is the current Chair holder of the CLSI-VAST subcommittee.
