Product Details

Kit Summary BioVision’s Minimal Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) kit, testing for Gram Negative Rods (GNR) is a broth microdilution assay that is simple yet sensitive for the quantification of any antimicrobial agent against a given bacterial isolate. The antibiotic efficacy is quantified using a Water Soluble Tetrazolium salt (WST) which changes color reflecting the viability of the bacteria as a response to antibiotic treatment. The test is performed in a microplate with bacteria-inoculated-Luria Bertani (LB) broth and serial dilutions of antimicrobial agents can be added. Our kit includes four antibiotics often prescribed for infections caused by gram negative rods. They are: Ampicillin Sodium, Chloramphenicol, Enrofloxacin, and Gentamicin Sulfate. Vancomycin Hydrochloride, an antibiotic effective in the treatment of gram positive cocci, is included as a negative control. The Antibiotic Susceptibility Limits of these antibiotics have been evaluated and correlated with published standards (Andrews, 2001) for Minimum Inhibitory Concentrations.
