Presumptive identification of aminoglycoside antibiotics by the pH susceptibility disc agar-diffusion method

Experientia
J V UriJ A Weisbach

Abstract

Using the pH (buffered) sensitivity discs for the agar-diffusion bioassay of aminoglycoside antibiotics, characteristic response curves were obtained. Since the nature of the activities observed are structure-related, this method can serve as a useful aid for primary identification of members of this class of antibiotics.
