5 McFarland standard Inoculation For 1-mm pin replicators, apply neat inoculum; for 3-mm pin replicators, dilute inoculum 1 in 10 Incubation 35°C, ambient air (CO2 if necessary for growth), 20â 24 h QC strains S. 5 McFarland standard Inoculation Dilute inoculum 1 in 10 and apply 1â 2 µL per spot Incubation 35â 37°C, ambient air, 18â 20 h QC strains S. 9% saline Inoculation Dilute inoculum 1 in 10 and apply 1â 2 µL per spot Incubation 35â 37°C, 5% CO2, 18â 24 h QC strains No specific strain recommended; use E.

At low inoculum densities, the drug has the ability to kill the organism before sufficient enzyme is produced, and much larger zones will result. In the development of different methods internationally, two approaches have been taken to the choice of inoculum density. 5 barium sulfate standard. This has been shown to result in quite different inoculum densities (in terms of cfus per milliliter) for different species (98). Hence methods some have chosen to vary the inoculum density by species or bacterial group, most notably the CA-SFM method (38,94).

Quality Control Quality control procedures in the performance of agar dilution are designed to ensure the reproducibility of the test and to confirm the performance of the reagents and the persons conducting the test. Most importantly, it is designed to detect errors of concentration or dilution of the antimicrobials, a not infrequent hazard in agar dilution testing. It is assumed that the laboratory is using reagents and materials from trusted suppliers who undertake quality control checks during manufacture.
