Sensitivity analysis, often known as sensitivity testing, assists the doctor in determining the most appropriate antibiotic to destroy an infecting microorganism. Infecting microorganisms are organisms that enter the body and cause an infection, such as bacteria or fungi.
A sensitivity analysis is a test that measures bacteria’s “sensitivity” to an antibiotic. It also decides the drug’s ability to destroy bacteria.
The test results will assist your doctor in determining which medications are most likely to be successful in treating your infection.
Doctors use antibiotic sensitivity testing to assess the best antibiotic treatment for an infection and to monitor increases in bacterial antibiotic resistance. Both are critical to your care.
