Evaluating antibody disks

EUCAST has evaluated the quality of 16 antimicrobial susceptibility test (AST) discs from nine manufacturers against EUCAST targets and ranges for relevant quality control strains.

Two studies took place to test the AST discs, the first was in 2014, and the second was last year.

A new report highlights that from 2014 to 2017, Mast Group maintained a high level of consistency of well-calibrated discs, maintaining both quality and performance throughout the studies.
