Antibiotic Sensitivity Discs

For the Measurement of the Resistance and Sensitivity of the major microbial species to the antibiotic/chemothraputic agents.

PRINCIPLE:

The discs-diffusion test is based on the fact that for a given antibiotic, the size of the zone inhibition is inversely related to MIC (determined by dilution method) of the strain being tested when the test conditions are held constant. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing with discs is a simple and rapid method and provides a reproducible means of testing bacterial sensitivity to various antibiotics and chemotherapeutic agents.
