Description:This Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) microbiologist was in the process of setting up an autoinoculator for loading a broth microdilution panel for antimicrobial susceptibility testing of Streptococcus pneumoniae for CDC’s Active Bacterial Core surveillance (ABCs).

Active Bacterial Core surveillance (ABCs) - Overall Objectives:

- To determine the incidence and epidemiologic characteristics of invasive disease due to Haemophilus   influenzae, Neisseria meningitidis, group A Streptococcus, group B Streptococcus, Streptococcus   pneumoniae and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in multiple large diverse U.S. populations

- To determine molecular epidemiologic patterns and microbiologic characteristics of public health   relevance for isolates causing the above invasive infections

- To provide an infrastructure for further research, such as special studies aimed at identifying risk factors for   disease, post-licensure evaluation
