Pylori to ensure prompt and adequate growth (119). Zone Edge The features of the zone edge will be determined, by the drug activity-species relationship, the resistance mechanism (if present) and occasional peculiarities of the species. Certain drug classes are notorious for producing ―fuzzy‖ zone edges, where there is a gradual decrease in inhibition over a distance of 1–5 mm. This is a standard feature of sulfonamides and will be seen sometines with dihydrofolate reductase inhibitors and amphenicols.

This is a direct result of the concept of ―the critical time‖ discussed earlier. Many bacteria are capable of initiating growth at room temperature, the temperature at which plates are usually inoculated. If the plates are preincubated at 35°C, the effect will be exaggerated. Studies examining this phenomenon have been used to elucidate the critical time (13). 4). The exceptions are the Swedish SRGA method, which requires disk placement within 30 minutes, and the CDS method, which requires disk placement within 45 minutes.

Calibration of Turbidity Inocula are always calibrated to a turbidity standard, usually a McFarland turbidity standard, which employs particulate suspensions of barium sulfate. 5 is the commonest choice and can be prepared as described in various texts (38,103). 5 mL of 1% w/v H2SO4 (103). , Remel, Lenexa, and KS). Normally a visual comparison is made with the turbidity standard. It is important that this be done in good lighting and against a card with a white background and a contrasting black line.
