Hardy Diagnostics Beta-Lactamase Test is used to detect the presence of the bacterial enzyme beta-lactamase by the rapid acidometric method.


Hardy Diagnostics Beta-Lactamase Test is a means of detecting the enzyme beta-lactamase, which confers penicillin resistance to various bacterial organisms by cleaving the beta-lactam ring of penicillins and cephalosporin antibiotics. A wide variety of bacteria produce this enzyme, including both gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. This acidometric method is recommended for use in testing beta-lactamase production by Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Haemophilus species and Staphylococcus species.
