eMIC™-MIC test strip

eMIC™- MIC test strip
The sensitivity of an isolate to a particular antibiotic is measured by establishing the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) or breakpoint, this is the lowest concentration (conventionally tested in doubling dilutions) of antibiotic at which an isolate cannot produce visible growth after overnight incubation. MICs can be determined by agar or broth dilution techniques by following the reference standards established by various authorities such as the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI, USA), British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (BSAC, UK), AFFSAPS (France), Deutsches Institut für Normung e.V. (DIN, Germany) & ISC/WHO.
