Agar shake tube technique for simultaneous determination of aerobic and anaerobic susceptibility to antibiotics.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The broth dilution method of determining the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of antibiotics has been adapted to an agar shake tube technique with semisolid media. This permits the simultaneous determination of the aerobic and anaerobic MICs for facultatively anaerobic bacteria such as staphylococci.
