A modified Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion (mKB) method for accurately testing tigecycline susceptibility: a nation-wide multicenter comparative study

Conclusion. The mKB method can test bacterial susceptibility to tigecycline more accurately than sKB. For the tigecycline-intermediate or -resistant strains by sKB method, BMD or mKB method should be used to verify the results and report reliable tigecycline susceptibility results.PMID:37552058 | DOI:10.1099/jmm.0.001671
