Uses of antibiotic sensitivity testing l.jpg
Uses of Antibiotic Sensitivity Testing

  • Antibiotic sensitivity test: A laboratory test which determines how effective antibiotic therapy is against a bacterial infections.

  • Antibiotic sensitivity testing will control the use of Antibiotics in clinical practice

  • Testing will assist the clinicians in the choice of drugs for the treatment of infections.

  • Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Components of antibiotic sensitivity testing l.jpg
Components of Antibiotic Sensitivity Testing

  • 1.The identification of relevant pathogens in exudates and body fluids collected from patients

  • 2. Sensitivity tests done to determine the degree of sensitivity or resistance of pathogens isolated from patient to an appropriate range of antimicrobial drugs

  • 3. Assay of the concentration of an administered drug in the blood or body fluid of patient required to control the schedule of dosage.

Why need continues for testing for antibiotic sensitivity l.jpg
Why Need continues for testing for Antibiotic Sensitivity selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • Bacteria have the ability to develop resistance following repeated or subclinical (insufficient) doses, so more advanced antibiotics and synthetic antimicrobials are continually required to overcome them.

  • Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Testing for antibiotic sensitivity l.jpg
Testing for Antibiotic sensitivity selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • The method includes several steps including obtaining a bacterial sample; identifying the type of bacteria in the bacterial sample; selecting a set of antibiotics based on the identity of the bacteria in the bacterial sample; obtaining a control sample from the bacterial sample;

Testing Antibiotic Susceptibility selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • Antibiotic sensitivity test: A laboratory test which determines how effective antibiotic therapy is against a bacterial infections.

  • Antibiotic sensitivity test: the in vitro testing of bacterial cultures with antibiotics to determine susceptibility of bacteria to antibiotic therapy. Bauer-Kirby test.

How results to be reported after sensitivity testing l.jpg
How results to be Reported after Sensitivity Testing selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • One should follow guidelines in reporting the results and make matters simple with clear words as

    Organism A isolated and sensitive ( or resistant ) to Antibiotic B

    Such a report is relevant to present clinical condition “ that the minimum inhibitory concentration( MIC ) of the antibiotic for it has been measured in some way and that, if the organism is reported as sensitive the MIC is less than a half or quarter of the concentration of antibiotics likely to be found in the infected tissues of a patient given the usual schedule of doses i.e. that the infection is treatable”


What is resistance in antibiotic sensitivity testing l.jpg
What is Resistance in Antibiotic Sensitivity Testing selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • Resistance implies that the infection is not treatable with the tested Antibiotic because its MIC exceeds achievable safe tissue or urine levels.

  • Intermediate sensitivity means they show aunimodal distribution, but they can often be reclassified as sensitive or resistant if retested.

  • Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Kirby bauer methods a commonly used method in basic laboratories l.jpg
Kirby-Bauer methods selection of Antibiotic Testing MethodsA commonly used method in basic laboratories

  • Kirby-Bauer antibiotic testing (KB testing or disk diffusion antibiotic sensitivity testing) is a test which uses antibiotic-impregnated wafers to test whether particular bacteria are susceptible to specific antibiotics

  • Dr.T.V.Rao MD


How to perform kirby bauer testing l.jpg
How to perform Kirby- Bauer testing selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • The basics are easy:  The bacterium is swabbed on the agar and the antibiotic discs are placed on top.  The antibiotic diffuses from the disc into the agar in decreasing amounts the further it is away from the disc.  If the organism is killed or inhibited by the concentration of the antibiotic, there will be NO growth in the immediate area around the disc: This is called the zone of inhibition. 

  • Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Steps in antibiotic sensitivity testing l.jpg
Steps in Antibiotic sensitivity testing selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods


Streaking the inoculum l.jpg
Streaking the Inoculum selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • Kirby-Bauer (also Bauer-Kirby) disk diffusion antibiotic susceptibility testing applies a defined inoculum (compared to McFarland 0.5 OD standard streaked as a lawn onto a large Mueller-Hinton agar or Blood agar plate (in 3 directions to ensure confluence).

  • Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Making proper inoculum l.jpg
Making proper inoculum selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • Swab a Mueller-Hinton plate with each of the bacteria.  Dip a sterile swab into the broth and express any excess moisture by pressing the swab against the side of the tube.

    Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Bacteria are inoculated as lawn culture l.jpg
Bacteria are inoculated as lawn culture selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • Method of inoculation- Good results are obtained by placing a standard loopful of inoculum suspension on the plate and then spreading it with a dry sterile swab.


Disk diffusion method l.jpg
Disk Diffusion Method selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • After completely swabbing the plate, turn it 90 degrees and repeat the swabbing process. (It is not necessary to re-moisten the swab.)  Run the swab around the circumference of the plate before discarding it in the discard bag.

  • Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Placing the antibiotic disks l.jpg
Placing the Antibiotic disks selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • Then, using a dispenser such as the one pictured, antibiotic-impregnated disks are placed onto the agar surface. As the bacteria on the lawn grow, they are inhibited to varying degrees by the antibiotic diffusing from the disk

  • Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Zone sizes differ on sensitivity pattern l.jpg
Zone sizes differ on sensitivity pattern selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • It has been determined that zones of inhibition of a certain diameter (varies for antibiotic and to a lesser extent, bacterial species) correlate with sensitivity or resistance to the antibiotic tested


Look at the charts for establishing the zones of sensitivity l.jpg
Look at the Charts for establishing the zones of Sensitivity selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • The zone sizes are looked up on a standardized chart to give a result of sensitivie, resistant, or intermediate. Many charts have a corresponding column that also gives the MIC (minimal inhibitory concentration) for that drug.


Interpretation l.jpg
Interpretation selection of Antibiotic Testing Methods

  • Place the metric ruler across the zone of inhibition, at the widest diameter, and measure from one edge of the zone to the other edge.  HOLDING THE PLATE UP TO THE LIGHT MIGHT HELP.   

  • The disc diameter will actually be part of that number.   If there is NO zone at all, report it as 0---even though the disc itself is around 7 mm.   

  • Zone diameter is reported in millimetres, looked up on the chart, and result reported as S (sensitive), R (resistant), or I (intermediate).

    Such a report is relevant to present clinical condition “ that the minimum inhibitory concentration( MIC ) of the antibiotic for it has been measured in some way and that, if the organism is reported as sensitive the MIC is less than a half or quarter of the concentration of antibiotics likely to be found in the infected tissues of a patient given the usual schedule of doses i.e. that the infection is treatable”


Stokes method l.jpg
Stokes’ Method testing

  • In original Stokes’ method the inoculum of the control strain is evenly spread over the upper and lower thirds of a plate and that of the test strain over the central third;uninoculated gaps 2 – 3 mm wide are left to test from the control areas.

  • Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Control strains in stokes method l.jpg
Control strains testingin Stokes’ Method

  • The Microbiology laboratories should always practice to test the quality control of their work with the use of standard strains in Stokes method with following standard strains and results are compared

    1 Escherichia coli NCTC 10418

    2 Pseudomonas aeruginosa NCTC 10662

    3 Staphylococcus aureus NCTC 6571


Stokes method for antibiotic sensitivity testing l.jpg
Stokes Method for Antibiotic Sensitivity testing testing

  • In the Stokes controlled sensitivity test, a control organism is inoculated on part of a plate and the test organism is plated on the remainder. Disks are placed at the interface and the zones of inhibition are compared. The use of a sensitive control shows that the antibiotic is active, so that if the test organism grows up to the disk it may safely be assumed that the test organism is resistant to that drug.

  • Dr.T.V.Rao MD



Other methods of antibiotic susceptibility testing l.jpg
Other methods of Antibiotic susceptibility testing testing

  • Other methods to test antimicrobial susceptibility include the Stokes method, E-test (also based on antibiotic diffusion). Agar and Broth dilution methods for Minimum Inhibitory Concentration determination.


Testing minimum inhibitory concentration l.jpg
Testing Minimum Inhibitory Concentration testing

  • In alternative measure of susceptibility is to determine the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) and the Minimum Bactericidal Concentration (MBC) of a drug. A series of broths are mixed with serially diluted antibiotic solutions and a standard inoculum is applied. After incubation, the MIC is the first broth in which growth of the organism has been

What is minimum inhibitory concentration l.jpg
What is Minimum Inhibitory concentration testing

  • Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC), in microbiology, is the lowest concentration of an antimicrobial that will inhibit the visible growth of a micro organism after overnight incubation. Minimum inhibitory concentrations are important in diagnostic laboratories to confirm resistance of micro organisms to an antimicrobial agent and also to monitor the activity of new antimicrobial agents.
