Title (EN) AN ANTIBACTERIAL SUSCEPTIBILITY TEST
(FR) TEST DE SENSIBILITE ANTIBACTERIEN
Abstract:
(EN) This invention is related to a test kit which determines the susceptibility of bacteria to antibiotics within four to six hours. Classical tests that determine the susceptibility of bacteria to antibiotics usually require 18-24 hours of incubation. The new tests that give the result early, require an instrument that will show the bacterial growth in a short period of time. The basis of this invention is the usage of a special media containing a color indicator that shows the bacterial growth in a short period of time. In this kit the metabolic activity of bacteria at a certain concentration of an antibiotic is determined by the change of the color of the medium and thus the susceptibility of the bacteria to this antibiotic is determined in a short period of time. In this way the result is obtained early without requiring an instrument.
(FR) L'invention concerne un kit de test déterminant la sensibilité de bactéries à des antibiotiques en l'espace de quatre à six heures. Les tests classiques déterminant la sensibilité de bactéries à des antibiotiques requièrent habituellement 18 à 24 heures d'incubation. Les nouveaux tests donnant un résultat précoce nécessitent un instrument montrant la croissance bactérienne en une durée courte. La base de cette invention réside dans l'utilisation d'un milieu spécial contenant un colorant montrant la croissance bactérienne en une durée courte. Dans ce kit, l'activité métabolique des bactéries à une certaine concentration d'antibiotiques est déterminée par le changement de couleur du milieu et ainsi la sensibilité des bactéries à cet antibiotique est déterminée en une durée courte. Ainsi on obtient rapidement le résultat sans instrument.
