True Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) results

Biovet is now using a new system that detects Antimicrobial resistance, It is NOT based on extrapolated minimum inhibitory concentration but uses True MIC results, which are essential to the fight against antimicrobial resistance for a number of reasons: 

  • Greater sensitivity: provides better monitoring of antimicrobial resistance; 
  • Better measure of antibacterial effect: can help in therapeutic choices;
  • Broth microdilution method;
  • Superior quality and reproducibility for accurate results the first time, eliminating additional, repetitive testing.

SUBMITTING SAMPLE: urine (250 μl), tissue, swab, liquid, other.

TRANSMITTING RESULTS: Test results will be available within 24 to 48 hours for urine and 2 to 5 days for other types of samples.

These analyses are performed every day.

For Vetware/LogiVet users, the analysis codes to use are: DCAN-20279 (canine), DFEL-20310 (feline) and DNAC-20040 (other small mammals).  For other codes, see the list at 

Other tests offered: Urology Profile + CMIC and Follow-up – CMIC (Culture and MIC).
