Interpretive criteria and quality control limits for ceftibuten disk susceptibility tests. Collaborative Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Group.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

In vitro studies were undertaken to evaluate susceptibility tests with 30-micrograms ceftibuten disks. The following interpretive criteria were proposed: less than or equal to 17 mm for resistance (MIC, greater than or equal to 32 micrograms/ml) and greater than or equal to 21 mm for susceptibility (MIC, less than or equal to 8.0 micrograms/ml). A multilaboratory quality control study led to the conclusion that Escherichia coli ATCC 25922 should provide zones 29 to 35 mm in diameter.
