    Objectives Conventional detection of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) producers in blood cultures usually requires overnight incubation. This could delay the prescribing of appropriate therapy. We evaluated whether the chromogenic cephalosporin HMRZ-86, which is hydrolysed by ESBLs, could...
