Abstract

Results with the E-Test minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) method correlated well with an agar dilution method in tests using a wide range of selected bacteria. Detection of methicillin resistance in Staphylococcus aureus was as reliable as agar dilution and disk diffusion methods. The ease of use of the E-Test makes it particularly suitable for routine clinical microbiology laboratories.
