Introduction
A Ph.D. in Microbiology. Her research focused on determining the burden of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the behavior of antimicrobial use in poultry and cattle farms in Egypt. She is also interested in science communication and game-based learning. She is currently volunteering with SAS-Africa to develop a game to raise public awareness on AMR.

Introduction: With the increased occurrence of methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA), the consumption of vancomycin, the drug of choice, has also increased. As a consequence, strains of S. aureus resistant to vancomycin have started to emerge. This study aimed to evaluate the level of vancomycin resistance among clinical and nasal S. aureus isolat...

Question
Hi all,
What reference strains that I can use as a positive control for detecting fluoroquinolone-resistance genes?
Thank you in advance.
Question
Hello everyone,
I know that disk diffusion is not a reliable method for detecting colistin resistance, but can I use it as a preliminary step that is followed by microbroth dilution?
Thank you in advance!
Question
I am using a media that is selective for vancomycin-resistant enterococci, but it keeps giving me Pediococcus (since Pediococcus is intrinsically resistant to vancomycin and has similar characteristics). The only way that could tell me it's not a VRE was using VITEK. Is there another way to differentiate between them?
Thank you in advance.
