Obligate anaerobic bacteria play a pivotal role in humans’ microbiota and are essential infectious agents, both in immunocompetent and immunocompromised persons, involved in several pathological processes. Their isolation, cultivation and accurate identification vary greatly from the work of aerobic organisms, while anaerobic diagnostics have improved drastically with the use of new technologies ( e.g., matrix-assisted laser desorption / ionisation time-of – flight mass spectrometry, whole genome sequencing). For these reasons, for surveillance purposes or otherwise, antimicrobial susceptibility testing of anaerobic … Continue reading “Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing of Anaerobic Bacteria: A Mini-Review”
