In this paper, comparison of efficiency of commercially available antibiotic susceptibility test MASTiK® with traditionally used Kirby-Bauer disk diffusion method in cow mastitis cases was described.

 

Six samples of examined milk were chosen on a randomly basis. In the samples, presence of the following microorganisms was determined: Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, coagulase-negative Staphylococcus sp. and Streptococcus uberis.

 

Based on the result of the trial, it was determined that MASTiK® test is completely comparable to the results obtained by classical disk diffusion method and can be of great help on a field in fast selection of antibiotics, while results of bacteriological identifications are being awaited.
