MUELLER HINTON AGAR | Dehydrated Culture Media

Mueller Hinton Agar was initially created for cultivating pathogenic Neisseria species but is now widely used for antimicrobial susceptibility testing. It offers batch-to-batch consistency, low interference with specific antibiotics, supports the growth of various non-fastidious bacteria, and has a well-documented performance history.
The Kirby-Bauer method, which uses this agar, involves testing the susceptibility of microorganisms by measuring zones of inhibition around paper discs impregnated with antimicrobial agents. It's based on the correlation between zone diameters and minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) values, following CLSI standards.
