SOP-ASIARESIST-MIC, for antibiotic susceptibility testing by broth dilution

A Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) was developed for determination of Minimum Inhibitory Concentrations (MICs) for a number of antibiotics with reference to the antibacterial agents tested in Southeast-Asian aquaculture practices, i.e. SOP-ASIARESIST-MIC.

The choice of these agents depends on the outcome of disc diffusion testing and can include one or more of the following agents: tetracycline, ampicillin, chloramphenicol, nitrofurantoin, norfloxacin, and trimethoprim/ sulfamethoxazole 1:19 (Co-trimoxazole). The SOP document is based on the use of (micro)broth dilution methodology.

The final version of the SOP was obtained following intensive discussions among partners and was made available to all partners during the lifetime of the project via the restricted access area of the project website.
