These panels are used for determining antimicrobial susceptibility and/or identification for gram-negative bacteria. An internal investigation has confirmed an increase in false susceptible and false intermediate misreads for imipenem and/or meropenem when read rapidly (< 16 hours) on the MicroScan® WalkAway Microbiology System¹. The investigation determined that no other antimicrobial agent results are affected. Siemens has notified the FDA of this action.
