phenotypic detection of ESBL by beta lacatmase inhibitor,CA=clavuleic acid..MBL is ambler's class A beta lactamase,which is inhibited by,CA=clavuleic acid .this research work was done in our research lab., department of clinical microbiology,tribhuvan university teaching hospital in nepal.
RESULT: zone of inhibition of cefotaxime with clavulenic acid (CTX
+CA) is greater than cefotaxime(CTX) alone by 5mm.
