Pick 4-5 colonies from 24-hours old cultures and suspend in saline solution or sterile water in order to obtain a 0.5 McFarland cell density. Introduce a sterile swab into the suspension and inoculate the RPMI Agar plate. Allow the plate to dry, position the antifungal strip onto the agar surface with the maximum concentration nearest the periphery of the plate.
Incubate at 35 °C for 24-48 hours.
Read the M.I.C. value where the edge of the inhibition ellipse intersects the strip (intersection between two scale segments should be round up to the higher value).
Available ready-to-use formats:
90 mm agar plate
140 mm agar plate
10-25°C storage temperature
180 days shelf life

EnteroPluri-Test is a 12-sector system containing special culture media for the identification of Enterobacteriaceae and other Gram-negative, oxidase negative bacteria. The system allows the simultaneous inoculation of all media present in the sectors and 15 biochemical reactions. The microorganism is identified by evaluating the color change of each culture medium after 18-24 hours of incubation at 36±1°C and by a code number obtained from the biochemical reaction interpretation.
