Antibiotic susceptibility testing by a standardized single disk method.
Recommendations of the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards continue to be based on this publication; the “Kirby-Bauer” method is, among the many disk methods used in other countries, still the one that has been researched most thoroughly and updated continuously. Expand
Antimicrobial susceptibility testing.
This review emphasizes the continued efforts toward standardization of methods for dilution and diffusion testing, particularly in the area of variation in medium performance, methods for detection of ampicillin resistant Haemophilus influenzae, and attempts to develop rapid automated systems for susceptibility testing.

Antibiotic susceptibility testing by a standardized single disk method.
Antibiotic sensitivity testing. Report of an international collaborative study.
A working party of people well known internationally in the field of antibiotic sensitivity testing was set up under World Health Organization sponsorship in 1961 to investigate the possibility of introducing standard techniques which might become universal reference methods. Expand
Determination of minimum bactericidal concentrations of oxacillin for Staphylococcus aureus: influence and significance of technical factors
The minimum bactericidal concentration of oxacillin for Staphylococcus aureus was shown to be considerably influenced by technical and definitional factors, particularly by the survival of someExpand
Medical Microbiology: An Introduction to Infectious Diseases
This medical microbiology an introduction to infectious diseases book will probably make you feel curious and help you to have willing to reach all benefits. Expand
Tests for the rapid breakdown of arginine by bacteria: their use in the identification of pseudomonads.
The ability to break down arginine rapidly is a useful taxonomic feature for pseudomonads and the qualitative tests may have practical value in the identification of strains which do not produce pigment. Expand

  • 1 November 1986
This minireview is the second of a two-part series which summarizes the major points of a symposium and roundtable discussion held at the 25th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy in Minneapolis in 1985 and focuses on the techniques used to detect genotypic antibiotic tolerance in clinical isolates of bacteria.

Susceptibility of Enterobacter to Cefamandole: Evidence for a High Mutation Rate to Resistance
The ability of some variants to inactivate cefamandole may have resulted from a mutation that extended the activity of Enterobacter cephalosporinase to include this antibiotic. Expand
Laboratory Evaluation of a Rapid, Automated Susceptibility Testing System: Report of a Collaborative Study
Comparisons of the Autobac 1 and disk diffusion methods showed that both methods gave levels of agreement with the International Collaborative Study agar dilution technique that were generally high and equivalent. Expand
