Performance Standards for Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing
|Publication Date:||1 January 2019|
The data in the tables are valid only if the methodologies in CLSI documents M02, M07, and M11 are followed. These standards contain information about disk diffusion (M02) and dilution (M07 and M11) test procedures for aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. Clinicians depend heavily on information from the microbiology laboratory for treating their seriously ill patients. The clinical importance of antimicrobial susceptibility test results demands that these tests be performed under optimal conditions and that laboratories have the capability to provide results for the newest antimicrobial agents. The tables presented in M100 represent the most current information for drug selection, interpretation, and quality control using the procedures standardized in M02, M07, and M11. Users should replace previously published tables with these new tables. Changes in the tables since the previous edition appear in boldface type.
