Abstracts e39 isoelectric focusing analysis, polymerase chain reaction and sequencing, we detected the major genotypic characterization of ESBLs was CTX-M-14 (76.2%). Two strains showed indistinguishable patterns by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. Conclusion: This study documented the CTX-M family as the predominant ESBL type among Macao population. The spread of CTX-M enzymes is concerning and deserves close monitoring in further investigation.
