Isolates Currently Available

The purpose of this bacterial bank is to provide panels of resistant bacteria, which can be used to challenge diagnostic devices and new antibiotic agents. These panels are assembled by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in collaboration with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

To use this page, click on the panel name to see a panel description and expand the list of available isolates.  The chart provides basic information about each isolate such as species, susceptibility information, key resistance determinants, and sequencing information.  Click on the PDF for each isolate to see the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) data, and propagation instructions.  You can also use the MS Excel file, located at the bottom of each panel list, to compare isolates and search through data.  Note that although some isolates may appear identical on the chart, more detailed data available in the PDF and Excel files will help to differentiate each.

Isolates available as of 04/11/2017

Enterobacteriaceae Carbapenem Breakpoint Panel

Enterobacteriaceae Carbapenem Breakpoint Panel

This panel was assembled to challenge tests that assess carbapenem susceptibility of Enterobacteriaceae. Isolates in this collection demonstrate a range of carbapenem susceptibility. The carbapenem-resistant isolates also have different resistance mechanisms (i.e., some isolates produce a carbapenemase and others do not).

Gram Negative Carbapenemase Detection Panel

Gram Negative Carbapenemase Detection Panel

This panel was assembled to challenge assays that detect carbapenemase production. Isolates in this collection represent a range of gram-negative bacteria; some producing a carbapenemase and others that demonstrate reduced susceptibility to carbapenems, but do not produce a carbapenemase. This collection was assembled to challenge assays that detect carbapenemase production.

Vancomycin Intermediate Staphylococcus aureus Panel

Vancomycin Intermediate Staphylococcus aureus (VISA) Panel

This collection of VISA isolates is meant to challenge diagnostic devices that test for S. aureus susceptibility to vancomycin. For all isolates in this panel the vancomycin MIC is 4 or 8 µg/mL. Please note, the VISA phenotype is typically unstable with repeat passage of an isolate. These isolates were chosen for their relatively stable phenotype, but care should be taken not to subculture the isolates excessively (e.g., greater than 3 times) before testing.

Candida auris Panel

Candida auris Panel

A panel of Candida auris isolates and other yeast species that are related to C. auris or are commonly misidentified as C. auris.

Caution: Candida auris has been shown to be transmitted in healthcare settings.  It is a good colonizer of skin and can live for up to four weeks on fomites.  Gloves and gowns should be worn when working with C. auris, and work in a hood or a biological safety cabinet is recommended to avoid laboratory contamination.  As quaternary ammonia compounds may not be effective, 10% bleach should be used for cleaning the work area.

Staphylococcus with Borderline Oxacillin Susceptibility Panel

Staphylococcus with Borderline Oxacillin Susceptibility Panel

This is a panel of Staphylococcus aureus isolates with variable susceptibility to oxacillin. Isolates with mecA-mediated oxacillin resistance are ones for which the MIC is close to the resistant breakpoint. This panel can be used as a rigorous challenge of diagnostic tests that measure oxacillin susceptibility or mecA-mediated resistance.

* Please Note:

MIC results for each antimicrobial agent for an isolate may commonly be ± 1 log2 (doubling dilution) different than what is posted on the FDA-CDC AR Bank website because this is the normal technical variability of antimicrobial susceptibility testing (see J. H. Jorgensen. 1993. J Clin Microbiol. Vol 31[11]: 2841-2844). MICs obtained by a user could possibly show an even greater difference than this, depending on the methodology, the modal MIC of the isolate, and if the MIC on the website is at a very low or very high testing range. However, major (resistant versus susceptible) or very major (susceptible versus resistant) interpretive category difference for a given drug-organism result should be uncommon (i.e., this could occur in the rare occasions where the susceptible and resistant breakpoints are within a single doubling dilution). In other cases a major or very major error likely indicates a problem with either the organism (e.g., losing a resistance mechanism upon passage) or the testing method being applied. The MIC results provided for each isolate were generated using frozen broth microdilution panels unless otherwise specified.
