Turbid broth (0.5 ml) from blood culture bottles was inoculated into 0.5 ml of brain heart infusion broth, incubated for 3 to 6 h, diluted 1:500 in distilled water, and then inoculated directly into microtiter broth dilution susceptibility trays to test for minimal inhibitory concentrations. The results were compared to the standard tests performed 24 h later on colonies from subculture plates. The minimal inhibitory concentrations measured by these two methods were compared in 1,875 organism… CONTINUE READING
