    Background: Conventional methods for isolation and antimicrobial susceptibility testing of bacterial isolates from positive blood culture bottles takes at least 48 hours. Direct antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) from positively flagged blood culture bottles helps to reduce the turnaround time (TAT) by 24 hours which will be useful in early initiation of appropriate antimicrobial therapy to reduce morbidity and mortality.
