CLSI M100 in China
Through an agreement with CLSI, a program to translate M100 into Chinese was developed by the China Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System, which includes 1,500 clinical laboratories as members. Professor Wang Hui, an advisor to the CLSI AST Subcommittee, and Professor Hu Fupin have been leading this effort together with a group of young volunteers who completed the translation in just three months. Forty-six individuals were involved and the project was sponsored by bioMérieux. The Chinese version of M100 in both hard copy and electronic formats is provided free of charge. A comprehensive training program for microbiologists and clinicians has also been developed to explain how to optimally use M100.

The ORWG is part of the CLSI Subcommittee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (AST) and was established in 2015. The formation of the working group originated in a desire to efficiently convey information regarding contemporary AST practices, recommendations, and resources to the clinical microbiology community. They welcome suggestions from you about any aspect of CLSI documents, educational materials, or their Newsletters.
