Abstract: The emergence and spread of antibacterial resistance among Gram-negative bacteria has become a global challenge for health care. Multiple programs have been implemented to reduce exposure and spread, but new therapeutics are necessary to combat these challenges. For the discovery and development of novel therapeutic agents to become a reality, multidrug-resistant (MDR) clinical isolates that represent current disease strains from around the globe are required. To support this effort, ATCC has collected and characterized 33 Gram-negative isolates using standard and new technologies.
