The ABAC system for antibiotics susceptibility testing was compared with an agar diffusion method in 14 960 tests, including 23 antibacterial agents. Identical breakpoints were used. Only 3% major discrepancies (M.d.; sensitive vs resistant) and 19% minor discrepancies (m.d.; intermediate vs sensitive or resistant) were noted. Major discrepancies were… CONTINUE READING
