Comparison of Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing of Campylobacter spp. by the Agar Dilution and the Agar Disk Diffusion Methods
The correlation and the level of agreement between the standardized agar dilution and the agar disk diffusion methods for antimicrobial susceptibility testing of Campylobacter were investigated. A high-level agreement between the two methods was evident for aminoglycosides and fluoroquinolones, while a low-level agreement was observed for other antibiotics.
