Services Offered
In vitro Susceptibility Anaerobic Testing Bactericidal/ Bacteriostatic Assessments Resistance Development Mechanism of Action High Throughput Screening Bacterial Identification Molecular biology Test Method Development

Following CLSI protocols, Micromyx offers in vitro susceptibility testing using robotic liquid handling instruments whenever possible. Each assay is validated with the appropriate quality control organism and antimicrobial agent.

Minimal Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) Testing:

Broth microdilution

Custom panels are created using a 96-well format. Compounds can be provided
as dry powders or as DMSO solutions.

Agar dilution

Compounds can be provided as dry powders or as DMSO solutions.

Disk diffusion

Using manufactured disks or disks made in house

Repository of Clinical Isolates

Recent clinical isolates of prevalent Gram-positive and negative pathogens, including anaerobic pathogens, available for screening. Isolates with genetically characterized resistance mechanisms (e.g. KPC, NDM-1, OXA) also available.
