Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) assay
Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) assay tests for antimicrobial susceptibility and sensitivity by measuring inhibition of growth of bacteria or fungi as a function of concentration. Emery Pharma (EP) routinely provides antibiotic susceptibility testing services using disc diffusion, agar dilution and broth microdilution MIC methods according to CLSI protocols (Check out our MIC guide in the resources section) Test articles can be natural or synthetic, mixtures or purified. Hundreds of bacterial strains including multi drug-resistant clinical isolates, ESKAPE pathogens, and multiple fungal strains are available in our inventory for immediate testing.
Below is an illustration of a panel representing Broth Microdilution MIC for 8 antimicrobials tested against a susceptible bacterial strain:
