Statistical methods for automated drug susceptibility

Dilution susceptibility testing methods are quantitative methods that de-termine the MIC by exposing the isolate to a series of two-fold dilutions of the antimicrobial agent (e.g., 1 g/mL, 2 g/mL, 4 g/mL, 8 g/mL, 16 g/mL, etc.) in a suitable culture system, such as broth or agar, on a series of plates or tubes.

Microbiology guide to interpreting minimum inhibitory

The MIC, or minimum inhibitory concentration, is the lowest concentration (in μg/mL) of an antibiotic that inhibits the growth of a given strain of bacteria. At IDEXX, a commercial automated system is used to determine MICs. A quantitative method of susceptibility testing, an MIC helps determine which class of antibiotic is most effective.
