The prevalence of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae has increased dramatically over the past decade. Identification of these bacteria because of its variation in minimum inhibitory concentration for carbapenem resistance is important. Therefore, identification of the bacteria in the clinical microbiology laboratory is a major matter for the selection and implementation of infection control measures and appropriate treatment plan. The screening of carbapenemase-producing bacteria could be done with different phenotypic, biochemical and molecular methods; however, each of these methods has its own advantages and disadvantages. The aim of this study is to investigate and introduction of common available methods to detect carbapenemase.
