CONA T., Erna. REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ADEQUATE OF AGAR SUSCEPTIBILITY TEST. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2002, vol.19, suppl.2, pp.77-81. ISSN 0716-1018.

The in vitro susceptibility testing of an antibiotic against pathogenic microorganisms can be performed by different methods being the agar disk diffusion the most commonly used by the microbiology laboratories, which hes been standardized for fast growing and some fastidious bacteria. The standardized method, which is recommended by NCCLS, is based on the one described originally by Bauer et al, whose qualitative results are well correlated to the quantitative ones obtained by (MIC) minimal inhibitory concentration
