A new screening method for investigating microbial interactions

A new screening method for investigating microbial interactions

Journal of Applied Bacteriology 52(2): 271-274

Interactions among Candida albicans, Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli were investigated using a screening system in which test microorganisms were incorporated in agar discs and effector microorganism in fluid growth media. Total and partial inhibition of test microorganisms were observed in agar discs when these were incubated in broths containing effector microorganisms. The ratio of numbers of test to effector microorganisms is of importance in the inhibition effect. The technique is cheap, simple and versatile.
