Acquired carbapenemases in Enterobacteriaceae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Saturday 20th January 2018


Hospital and community laboratories are requested to refer all isolates of possible carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) and carbapenemase-producing Pseudomonas aeruginosa to ESR for confirmation and further characterisation.

CPE surveillance reports are available. The first report covers the 6-year period 2009 (when the first CPE was identified in New Zealand) to 2014. Annual CPE surveillance reports are available for 2015 and 2016. 

In addition, until the annual surveillance report for the year is available, a cumulative line listing of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa confirmed during the year, updated at the end of each month, is available as an Excel file.
