Abstract

A rapid automated sensitivity testing system is evaluated in this report. The results have been compared with the standard disk diffusion method (ICS). Three hundred strains recently isolated from clinical cases : Enterobacteriaceae, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococci D, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, have been tested. The general agreement between the two techniques was 89 p. cent.
