Abstract:

The broth microdilution MIC method is used to measure (semiquantitatively) the in vitro activity of an antimicrobial agent against a bacterial isolate. A sterile plastic tray containing various concentrations of antimicrobial agents is inoculated with a standardized number of test bacteria. After overnight incubation at 35°C, the MIC is determined by observing the lowest concentration of an antimicrobial agent which will inhibit visible growth of the bacterium. MICs obtained are interpreted as susceptible, intermediate, or resistant, based on the criteria listed in the NCCLS MIC standard ( ).

Quick reference list for performing broth microdilution MIC tests

DCS, direct colony suspension standardized to a 0.5 McFarland turbidity standard; DCS/LPG, direct colony suspension or log-phase growth standardized to a 0.5 McFarland turbidity standard; HTM, test medium; LHB, lysed horse blood; GM, gentamicin; STR, streptomycin

All incubation temperatures are 35°C.

Tests for these species not fully addressed by the NCCLS; “presumptive” indicates that at least parts of the procedure are nonstandardized.

And other penicillinase-stable penicillins.
