Punch Hole Method. A Simplified Bio-Assay Technique of Antibiotic Concentrations
In the bio-assay of antibiotic concentrations in body fluids such as bile, blood, urine, etc., the diffusion of antibiotics into an agar medium is commonly utilized, and the techniques of these bio-assay are usually that of horizontal diffusion and that of vertical diffusion. In the former, the cup method, the paper cisc method, and the band culture method (okubo and Fujimoto, 1970 are the most commonly used, while in the latter, the super-position method (Torii, 1959) is the most common.
