Measuring Effectiveness of Antimicrobial Chemical Agents

Disk plate method, also called agar-disk diffusion method, is another common method used to evaluate or determine the effectiveness of antimicrobial chemical agent (e.g., antibiotic). In this method, which is very similar to the tube dilution method, a Petri plate containing an agar medium (usually Mueller-Hinton agar) overlayed with a culture of the test microorganism is prepared.

Agar dilution method. The agar dilution method was performed as described by Souza et al 20, with slight modification. The antifungal agents were serially two-fold diluted in RPMI 1640 agar brothmedium, to obtain concentrations ranging from 1.25 to 640g/ml for fluconazole, 0.3 to 160g/ml for ketoconazole, itraconazole and terbinafine, and 0.3 to 80g/ml for griseofulvin.
