We routinely screen AGNB for beta-lactamase production using the nitrocefin disc. Such beta-lactamase screening of these isolates rapidly provides information regarding their penicillin susceptibility. It should be borne in mind that a longer-than-usual period (up to one hour) may be required for some organisms to show a positive reaction. Occasional bacterial strains may resist beta-lactamase antibiotics through mechanisms other than the production of beta-lactamase. It is important to perform susceptibility testing to isolates recovered from sterile body sites, those that are recovered in pure culture or those that are clinically important and have variable or unique susceptibility.
