The incidence of multidrug-resistant (MDR) Gram-negative bacteria is increasing, including metallo-β-lactamase (MBL)-producing Pseudomonas sp.. The aim of this study was to screen metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs)-producing Pseudomonas sp. soil isolates showing susceptibility to imepenem.. MBL production was investigated by phenotypic tests using combined disc diffusion method. During the 3 months period of sampling, 30 isolates of Pseudomonas sp. were isolated from soil environments out of which 56.66% revealed MBL-producing isolates, 43.33% non-producers and  10% showed imepenem resistant.

Keywords: Metallo-beta-lactamase, multidrug-resistant, Pseudomonas sp.
