Current Issues in Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing
This section is based on a point-counterpoint session designed to help in defining the relevant issues facing the microbiologist today, with particular reference to the automated test systems. These issues are a compilation of a large number of issues that were raised during the symposium and the point-counterpoint session. In the point-counterpoint session, certain issues were raised to encourage discussions of different views on both sides of the point under discussion. Seminar attendees were encouraged to respond and to express their feeling on the subjects in writing. The authors have attempted to condense these discussions and written comments into the six general subjects that follow. It should be noted that there was considerable editing to condense the material into this form.
