Ampicillin/dicloxacillin Antimicrobial Susceptibility disks
Our Antibiotic disks contain, Ampicillin is an antibiotic useful for the treatment of a number of bacterial infections. It is active against Gram-( ) bacteria including Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, some isolates of Staphylococcus aureus (but not penicillin-resistant or methicillin-resistant strains), and some Enterococci. Activity against Gram-(-) bacteria includes Neisseria meningitidis, some Haemophilus influenzae, and some Enterobacteriaceae.
Dicloxacillin (INN) is a narrow-spectrum β-Lactam antibiotic of the penicillin class. It is used to treat infections caused by susceptible Gram-positive bacteria. It is active against beta-lactamase-producing organisms such as Staphylococcus aureus, which would otherwise be resistant to most penicillins. It is very similar to flucloxacillin and these two agents are considered interchangeable.
