English The industrial version of SuperCAZ/AVI® medium developed for screening CAZ/AVI resistant Gram-negative isolates has been evaluated here using a collection of 87 well-characterized clinical isolates of worldwide origin. In addition, testing was performed by spiking stools with a series of resistant and susceptible isolates. In those conditions, the SuperCAZ/AVI® medium exhibited a sensitivity and specificity of 100 %, down to the lower limit of detection of 101 to 102 CFU/ml. The SuperCAZ/AVI® medium is a sensitive and specific screening medium for detection of CZA-resistant bacteria regardless of their resistance mechanisms.
