Objective: To determine the frequency of Metallo-
-lactamase producing Enteriobacteriaceae species.
Owing to plasmid mediated mode of spread of metallo-
carbapenemase among enterobacteriaceae, the risk of nosocomial infections, epidemic outbreaks and increased mortality is of great concern.3 Therefore, an early, reliable and affordable laboratory method for the detection of carbapenemase-producing enterobacteriaceae is of utmost importance in any clinical laboratory.
