FIG. 1. From: Multicenter Study To Determine Disk Diffusion and Broth Microdilution Criteria for Prediction of High- and Low-Level Mupirocin Resistance in Staphylococcus aureus .

Scatter plot of broth microdilution MICs obtained with Difco CAMHB and disk diffusion zone diameters obtained with BD 200-μg disks after repeat testing of discrepant strains identified during phase 2. mupA-positive strains are marked with an asterisk and are presented slightly off center of the mupA-negative strains. See the text for a description and explanation of the discrepancies.

FIG. 2. From: Multicenter Study To Determine Disk Diffusion and Broth Microdilution Criteria for Prediction of High- and Low-Level Mupirocin Resistance in Staphylococcus aureus .

Scatter plot of the broth microdilution MICs obtained with Difco CAMHB and disk diffusion zone diameters obtained with BD 5-μg disks after repeat testing of discrepant strains identified during phase 2. mupA-positive strains are marked with an asterisk and are presented slightly off center of the mupA-negative strains. The horizontal line separates mupirocin-susceptible isolates (MICs ≤ 4 μg/ml) from isolates that are mupirocin nonsusceptible. The vertical line is a proposed breakpoint that would separate mupirocin-susceptible isolates (zone diameters, ≤11 mm) from nonsusceptible isolates using the disk diffusion test with the 5-μg disk.
