Acceptable limits for control strains
Acceptable limits for control strains control strains

  • Used by diagnostic laboratories to monitor the performance of testing.

  • There are gaps in the tables that need filling.

  • At present S. aureus is used to control testing of fastidious organisms and this may not be ideal because the growth requirements of fastidious organisms are different to that of staphylococci.


Findings from a previous bsac study
Findings from a previous control strainsBSAC study

  • Confirmed that agar poured `in-house’ to a depth between 3.5-4.5 mm, and pre-poured plates from Oxoid and bioMerieux gave acceptable results by BSAC methodology.

  • When combined data from these plates was used to calculate the acceptable limits for all of the antibiotic/strain combinations tested, the ranges were similar to those found in previous `field studies’. So it was proposed that this procedure could be used to fill the gaps in the tables.


Programme design
Programme design control strains

  • After discussion the Working Party decided that it would be prudent if acceptable limits were calculated using data from several laboratories rather than one centre.

  • However, SMDC acceptable ranges could be used as a guide for comparison.


Request for help
Request for help control strains

  • Needed the help of laboratories using the BSAC method, but unsure if laboratories would take part.

  • Letter sent to known users of the BSAC method

  • Asking if they would take part and select from a list of antibiotic/strain combinations those they were prepared to test

  • 20 laboratories agreed to take part


Qc study
QC Study control strains

  • SMDC calculated acceptable limits by testing discs 40 times each on ISA poured to a depth of 3.5, 4 & 4.5mm and pre-poured plates from Oxoid & bioMerieux. 200 observations

  • The participating laboratories were asked to test discs (supplied by SMDC) 5 times on 10 separate occasions. 250 observations.


How are the acceptable limits for the control strains calculated
How are the acceptable limits for the control strains calculated?

  • Obtain at least 200 zone diameters for the strain/antibiotic disc combination.

  • Determine the number of observations at each zone diameter.

  • Calculate the cumulative % at each zone diameter.

  • Construct a graph of cumulative % versus zone diameter.

  • Read off the zones equivalent to 2.5% & 97.5% of observations to give the acceptable range.

Conclusions
Conclusions calculated?

  • Reasonable to exclude data from the analysis that is outside the acceptable limits generated by SMDC or that is different to the other laboratories


Conclusions1
Conclusions calculated?

  • Very worthwhile exercise and the rolling programme is to be continued including looking at fastidious controls.

  • In future studies control strains will be provided.

  • Laboratories asked to test `once daily’ as this reflects `real life’.


Future meeting
Future meeting calculated?

  • Intend to have a meeting with the participating laboratories

  • Need to look at data from centres where zones are generally different from SMDC & other participants
