This site lists breakpoints only for antibiotic/organism combinations tested in the BSAC Resistance Surveillance Project; they were extracted from BSAC and EUCAST sources in Jul 2013. Recommendations may have changed since then. Please visit the BSAC or EUCAST websites for the most recent complete annotated tables.
The breakpoints used to classify isolates as susceptible/intermediate/resistant on this website are the version 12 BSAC breakpoints (May 2013), with a correction for Streptococci-oxa (S<=2). In a few cases, where BSAC breakpoints have not been set, EUCAST v 3.1 breakpoints (Feb 2013) are used (for S. pneumoniae with dor, min and tec; alpha-haemolytic streptococci with amp, cxm, dor, etp, ipm and mem; beta-haemolytic streptococci with lvx, min, mxf, rif, tec and van; enterococci with ipm; Acinetobacter with lvx; H. influenzae with min; and M. catarrhalis with azm, ctx and min).
More recent breakpoints may exist.
UPDATED PROTOCOLSThe protocols have been updated to cover respiratory isolates collected in 2012/13 and bacteraemia isolates collected in 2012.
