In vitro comparison of agar and microbroth dilution methods for determination of MICs for Mycoplasma hominis

Academic Article


  • Ten replicates of three Mycoplasma hominis strains were tested by microbroth and agar dilution against levofloxacin, moxifloxacin, gatifloxacin, erythromycin, tetracycline, and clindamycin. Both methods provide reproducible results. Agar dilution tends to yield higher MIC values for some drugs. © 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
