When one or more results are out of this range, the test run must be considered invalid and be rerun. Use in Routine Susceptibility Testing Agar dilution can been adapted to routine susceptibility testing. Essentially, it is a truncated method that incorporates one or two selected concentrations of antimicrobial, usually at breakpoint values (so-called breakpoint susceptibility testing). It has been advocated as an option for routine testing by some authorities (153) but is slowly being supplanted by other methods.

Higher disk contents and slower growth produce larger zones. If zones are large enough, ones from adjacent disks can run into each other and reduce the chance of accurately determining the zone diameter. The NCCLS method, among others, specifies the distance between adjacent disks (24 mm from center to center) to minimize the chances of zone overlap. This limits to five the number of disks that can be placed on a 90-mm plate, a considerable inconvenience if six to eight drugs need to be tested, as the cost of large plates is often substantially more that the cost of the common 90-mm Petri plate.
