Microbiology The profile of an organism's susceptibility/resistance to a panel of antibiotics, which can be used to determine genetic relatedness of various bacteria Cf Molecular strain typing.


A profile of the antimicrobial resistance and susceptibility of a particular microorganism.

antibiogram (anˈ·tē·bīˑ·ō·gram),

n method of testing the efficacy of antibiotics by introducing an antibiotic into the middle of a bacteria-laden petri dish. A clear zone indicates the bactericidal activity. The greater the diameter of the zone, the higher the efficacy of the antibiotic.
