Antibiotic sensitivity

Because susceptibility can vary even within a species (with some strains being more resistant than others), antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) is usually carried out to determine which antibiotic will be most successful in treating a bacterial infection in vivo.

The antibiotic disk sensitivity test

Jun 11, 2010The antibiotic disk sensitivity test One of the most widely used methods to determine the susceptibility of microorganisms to antimicrobial agents is the disc agar- diffusion method. The principle of this method is dependent upon the inhibition of reproduction of a microorganism on the surface of a solid medium by an antimicrobial agent which diffuses into the medium from a filter paper disc.

Organisms susceptible to antimicrobial agents are commonly used but resistant organisms are necessary when testing for particular mechanisms of resistance.

Testing the Effectiveness of Antimicrobials

Testing the effectiveness of antimicrobial drugs against specific organisms is important in identifying their spectrum of activity and the therapeutic dosage.This type of test, generally described as antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST), is commonly performed in a clinical laboratory.In this section, we will discuss common methods of testing the effectiveness of antimicrobials.

Definition of Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (AST

The standard procedure for assessing antimicrobial activity is the disc diffusion test. Agar is evenly inoculated with a suspension of pure culture onto the surface. Filter paper discs containing a specified dose of antimicrobial agent are placed onto the inoculated agar. After a specified incubation period, the diameters of the inhibition zones formed around each disc are measured.
