8%). The rates for those with an MIC <1 dilution below the susceptible breakpoint are as follows: major, 0/86 (0%); and minor = 0/86 = 0%. 53 Rapid Disk Testing As zone diameters for rapidly growing bacteria become visible after a few hours and after the critical time has passed (see Theoretical Aspects earlier in this chapter), interest has been shown in the possibility of reading disk susceptibility results earlier than the conventional 16 to 20 hours (16,24,82,84,121). 9%) (2). One quarter of the strains of P.

Influenzae ATCC 49247 (NCTC 12699) or H. 5 McFarland standard Inoculation Apply undiluted inoculum at 1–2 µL per spot Incubation 35–37°C, ambient air, 18–24 h QC strains No specific strain recommended; use E. coli, P. aeruginosa, or S. 5 cm2 with a replicator or micropipette Incubation 35–37°C, ambient air, 16–20 h QC strains H. influenzae ATCC 49247 (DSM 9999), H. influenzae ATCC 49766 (DSM 11970), S. pneumoniae ATCC 49619 (DSM 11967), S. pneumoniae (DSM 11865) (there is no ATCC equivalent), M.

Even then it can take up to 4 h for the center plate to reach the incubator temperature (35). Reading Plates should be read with optimum lighting, preferably on a dark, nonreflecting surface. For instance, in Fig. 2, growth has obviously occurred at some spots but not at others. The MIC is taken as the first concentration at which no growth occurs. Most standards recommend that the appearance of one or two colonies or a faint haze can be ignored. However, if there are one to two colonies at a number of concentrations rather than a single one above the putative MIC, then the MIC is that concentration at which no colonies are seen.
