A method for preparing uniformly dispersed cultures of Nocardia asteroides for use in tests for susceptibility to antimicrobial agents is described. The minimal inhibiting concentration (MIC) of 45 agents for cultures thus prepared was determined with the use of a replica-inoculating apparatus. Minocycline at a concentration of 3.1 mug or less/ml inhibited 90% of the strains tested, and all were inhibited by 6.3 mug/ml. An erythromycin concentration of 0.8 mug or less/ml inhibited 40% of the… CONTINUE READING
