Boronic acid and cloxacillin are well considered as Inhibitors of the Amp C enzyme, incorporation of these substances into disk-based assays, increases the probability of detection and help reaching diagnostic finality3,6.
These inhibitors include boronic acids for KPC detection, dipicolinic acid or Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) for MBL, clavulanate (an inhibitor of ESBL), cloxacillin (an inhibitor of AmpC) and avibactam (NXL104) for OXA-48.
