Kirby-Bauer method

Kirby-Bauer method

a method for testing the antimicrobial susceptibility of bacteria based on the size of zones of inhibition of growth of a lawn culture around disks impregnated with the antimicrobial drug.

Eighty-three gram-negative bacterial isolates were tested for antibiotic susceptibility against six antibiotics (gentamicin [GEM], tetracycline [TET], ampicillin [AMP], ciprofloxacin [CIP], chloramphenicol [CHL], and ceftazidime [CEF]) by Kirby-Bauer method of disk diffusion.
Antibiogram of isolates was performed using Kirby-Bauer method (Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) guidelines).
Then, the bacteria were tested to determine the presence of ABIs using the Kirby-Bauer method.
aureus or enterococci were tested for their sensitivity to teicoplanin and various other standard antimicrobials in therapy, using the disc diffusion testing by the Kirby-Bauer method.
Antimicrobial drug susceptibility testing was conducted by Kirby-Bauer method in accordance with the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (4) against ampicillin (10 [micro]g), ceftriaxone (30 [micro]g), ciprofloxacin (5 [micro]g), furoxone (300 [micro]g), cotrimoxazole (25 [micro]g), and tetracycline (30 [micro]g).
The reference method was the Kirby-Bauer method using Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute guidelines.
These isolates were tested for the sensitivity to imipenem (10 [micro]g) using Kirby-Bauer method as recommended by National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS, now known as Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute, CLSI) (4).
We used three types of Antibiotic Susceptibility Test Disks (Difco Laboratories) for the Kirby-Bauer method.
Specimens were cultured in accordance with standard typing and identification techniques, and sensitivity tests were performed according to the Kirby-Bauer method.
After identification sensitivity test was performed by Kirby-Bauer method and inference was made with the guideline of manufacturer (HiMedia).
