Vitek should have informed you of their recommendation on quality control 
organisms. These ATCC typed microbes are supplied by various suppliers. 
Each new lot of cards is tested for quality using the recommended 
organisms for that particular card type (eg. GNI,  GPI, etc...).We use 
several different organisms per card type. I would consider valid results 
from these QC runs as validation.
