      <Abstract>Preliminary results obtained after applying two methods for the detection of carbapenemase, the colorimetric Blue-carba and the inactivating carbapenem, are presented, which were tested in six strains isolated from clinical samples, where satisfactory results were obtained after using both procedures. Taking into account the importance of these enzymes in Microbiology laboratories, due to the clinical-epidemiological impact they represent and the difficulty of not having molecular methods, these procedures are proposed for their detection.</Abstract>
