Abstract

This chapter describes protocols for determining A. baumannii isolates' overall levels of sensitivity to heavy metals; copper is used as a model heavy metal. Measurements of the ability of strains to grow in the presence of various concentrations of copper in liquid media and on copper-containing surfaces are described.
