  • It is used to confirm unusual resistance pattern
  • When borderline results are obtained by disk diffusion method
  • When disk diffusion method testing a particular antibiotic against a microorganism may give unreliable results.
  • Widely used in antimicrobial resistance surveillance
  • Used in comparative testing of new antimicrobial drugs
  • Epidemiological studies of susceptibility patterns
  • When quantitative results are needed for clinical management of patient
