Antibiotic susceptibility test of some bacteria associated with shrimp and fish farms in Thailand

6 antibiotic discs from Oxoid was selected as follow: tetracycline, ampicilin, chloramphenicol, nitrofurantoin, norfoxacin and trimethoprim to do the sensitivity test of bacterial samples isolated from shrimp and fish farms in Thailand.

Reference strain harmonisation set were
- ASIARESIST strain C256-V-OM-A-4-O-1,
- Eschericia coli LMG 8223,
- Aeromonas hydrophila LMG 2844,
- Stenotrophomonas maltophilia LMG 11098,
- Acinetobacter junii LMG 10577,
- Salmonella enteritidis LMG 10395.

After searched on more literatures the second harmonisation set of bacteria for sensitivity test was added as follow: Photobacterium damsella LMG 7892, Vibrio mediterranei LMG 11258, Vibrio alginolyticus LMG 4409, Aeromonas salmonicida LMG 3780, Yersinia ruckeri LMG 3280.

Most of the isolates from Thailand show multi-resistance to the antibiotics tested.
