Phenotypic testing of bacterial antimicrobial resistance has been widely used in clinical and diagnostic microbiology laboratories. These methods have been well studied and standardized. They have the advantages of being low cost, easy to perform (automated systems), and interpretation criteria readily available for commonly encountered organisms. These assays also are essential for new resistance discovery.
