This document describes one reference method, broth micro-dilution, for determination of MICs.
The MIC can be a guide for the clinician, and reflects the activity of the drug under the described
test conditions, by taking into account other factors, such as drug pharmacology, pharmacokinetics,
or bacterial resistance mechanisms. This allows categorisation of bacteria as “susceptible” (S),
“intermediate” (I), or “resistant” (R). In addition, MIC distributions can be used to define wild type
