Essential Agreement Categorical Agreement

Error rates, consistencies and essential chords for 100 staphylococcal and enterococcal isolates tested with linezolid Fifty staphylococcal isolates and 50 enterococci isolates were tested for vulnerability to linezolid by broth microdilution, disc diffusion, etest, MicroScan, Phoenix, VITEK and VITEK 2. The categorical and essential agreements of the results of the six methods used for the broth microverdification method are presented in Table 1.1. The results of each method are listed below. Isolates for which very significant or major errors have been reported are listed in Table 22. Special considerations for evaluating the performance of AST with populations of bacteria enriched with non-wild isolates. .
