Colistin, also known as polymyxin E, is an antibiotic medication used as a last-resort treatment for multidrug-resistant Gram-negative infections including pneumonia. These may involve bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, or Acinetobacter.

Colistin is a decades-old drug that fell out of favor in human medicine due to its kidney toxicity, which is effective against most Gram-negative bacilli. The detection limit of this colistin rapid test kit can meet both European and USA MRLs when use properly.
