Abstract: FK-037, a new parenteral cephalosporin, was tested against 483 organisms from clinical infections to establish preliminary susceptibility testing criteria with 30-jig disks. The proposed breakpoint zone diameters were-17 mm (MIC correlate, .8 ,ug/ml) for the susceptible category and <13 mm (MIC correlate, .32 ,ug/ml) for the resistant category. These interpretive guidelines produced no very major (false-susceptible) errors, 2.9% major (false-resistant) errors, and 6.2% minor errors for a total absolute agreeme…
