Mueller-Hinton medium

Muel·ler-Hin·ton me·di·um

(mū'lĕr hin'tŏn),
an agar-based medium composed of beef infusion, casamino acids, and starch; the recommended medium for antibacterial susceptibility tests for most common aerobic and facultatively anaerobic bacteria.

Muel·ler-Hin·ton me·di·um

(myū'lĕr hin'tŏn mē'dē-ŭm)
The standard agar-based medium for antibacterial susceptibility tests for the most common aerobic and facultatively anaerobic bacteria. Nutritional supplements are added for fastidious organisms. The pH cation content and depth of the agar must be properly controlled because these factors affect the accuracy of the test results.

The minimum inhibition concentration was determined by the disk diffusion method in the Mueller-Hinton medium. This method allows for the determination of total levels of antibiotic resistance from typical colonies, thereby detecting the most resist phenotypes present and the results were separately interpreted by using the breakpoints from the CLSI guidelines (CLSI, 2005).
MICs of antimicrobial drugs were determined for the gram-negative bacilli by using an Etest assay (AB BIODISK, Solna, Sweden) on Mueller-Hinton medium. MICs were 1 [micro]g/mL for cefotaxime, 1 [micro]g/mL for amoxicillin--clavulanic acid, 2-3 [micro]g/mL for vancomycin, 0.064 [micro]g/mL for imipenem, 4-5 [micro]g/mL for ceftazidime, 1 [micro]g/mL for amikacin, 3 [micro]g/mL for ciprofloxacin, and 0.047 [micro]g/mL for trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.
