Antibiotic Susceptibility Test - Resistant, Intermediate, Susceptible

After conducting an antibiotic sensitivity test, a number of results can be achieved. These results include both a qualitative result and a quantitative one and basically, indicate the MCI.

After you get your antibiotic test sensitivity report, it is advisable to let your medical caregiver interpret it.

  • Resistant: A resistant reading means that the antibiotic is not suitable for inhibiting the growth of the specific bacteria.
  • Intermediate: Intermediate means it may be effective if administered in higher and longer doses.
  • Susceptible: When the reading is susceptible, it means that the amount of antibiotic is a suitable inhibitor and therefore likely to be prescribed.
