Quality controls for antimicrobial disk diffusion testing on Leptospira Vanaporn Wuthiekanun agar.

Abstract:

Background

Disk diffusion susceptibility testing for Leptospira spp. on Leptospira Vanaporn Wuthiekanun (LVW) solid agar was reported recently. However, it was unclear whether the zone sizes obtained on LVW agar were comparable with those of other bacteria on Mueller-Hinton agar.

Methods

Here, we evaluate the disk diffusion assay on LVW agar using the standard quality control (QC) bacterial strains for 22 antimicrobials.

Results

All antimicrobials ...
