Abstract

<p>Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) has developed resistance to most antibiotics, making it increasingly difficult to treat. Previous studies have predicted antimicrobial NG susceptibility based on the antimicrobial gene target DNA gyrase subunit A (gyrA) codon serine 91 and the penicillin-binding protein 2 (penA) using Roche Cobas® and Hologic APTIMA™ clinical specimens. We studied whether similar methods could be used on remnant NG-positive Cepheid Xpert® specimens.</p>
