Phenotypic identification of carbapenemase producers: All five isolates, Morganella morganii, (n=2), Enterobacter cloacae (n=2) and Citrobacter freundii (n=1), were subjected to MHT for phenotypic detection of carbapenemase enzyme activity as described by CLSI.12 Out of 5 bla NDM-1 producers, four gave positive clover-leaf like indentation whereas, isolate Ec-93 was negative.
In the present study, out of 250 isolates studied, 134 (54%) are E.coli, and are the predominant isolates, followed by Klebsiella spp which are about 80(32%) cases and 8 (3.2%) cases of Enterobacter and 10 (4%) cases of Citrobacter were obtained.

These bacteria were classified in three different genera: Bacillus, Enterobacter and Citrobacter.
