Semiautomated rapid broth elution (Autobac Multi-Test System; General Diagnostics, Div. Warner-Lambert Co., Morris Plains, N.J.) and disk diffusion tests were compared with an agar dilution breakpoint method to determine the antibiotic susceptibility of 147 methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates from our hospital. Although the disk diffusion method, in general, correlated well with the agar dilution tests, the overall agreement of the Autobac tests with agar dilution tests was… CONTINUE READING
