Abstract

Special novobiocin elution disks were prepared for testing of coagulase-negative staphylococci in the MS-2 system (Abbott Laboratories, Diagnostics Div., Irving, Tex.). The MS-2 system correctly classified 91.5% of 82 isolates as either susceptible or resistant to novobiocin in an average time of 5.8 h.
