Antibiotic Susceptibility Tests are conducted in microbiological laboratories to study the effect of an antibiotic on the growth of a microbe. The most common method to study antibiotic susceptibility includes the Kirby-Bauer Method. In this method, small discs saturated with antibiotic is placed on the plate containing the bacteria. A zone of inhibition of growth around the disc is observed to study the susceptibility of the microbe to the antibiotic. Bacitracin-B-10units is a product by Micromaster. It is naturally produced by Bacillus subtilis without the help of ribosomes. Commercially, the production of this antibiotic occurs in a liquid media, in which the bacteria secretes the product. Structurally, it is a mix of several cyclic peptide groups and is capable of inhibiting cell wall and proteoglycan synthesis in gram positive bacteria. Several fractions of bacitracin have been identified (A, A1, B, B1, B2, C, D, E, F, G and X. It's a narrow spectrum antibiotic and is effective against Staphylococcus.
