Abstract

SUMMARY

A procedure for testing the sensitivity of streptomycetes to antibiotics is described. Eight antibiotics, at various concentrations, were incorporated into filter-paper discs and by selection of suitable concentrations results of diagnostic value were obtained. Streptomycetes previously grouped together by using other criteria had identical or very similar antibiotic sensitivity patterns. It is considered that the reactions of streptomycetes to a range of antibiotics would be of value for description of species and studies of overall similarity.
