Mueller Hinton Agar was originally developed because clinical microbiology laboratories in the early 1960s were using a wide variety of procedures for determining the susceptibility of bacteria to antibiotic, and chemotherapeutic agents, Bauer, Kirby and others developed a standardized procedure in which Mueller Hinton Agar was selected as the test medium. 0000010645 00000 n Mueller Hinton II Broth with 2% Sodium Chloride (NaCl) is for testing methicillin-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).1 Summary and Explanation The development of laboratory tests to determine the activity of antimicrobial agents has paralleled the development of these agents. Mueller Hinton Agar is made up of Beef Extract and Acid Hydrolysate of Casein, providing nitrogen, vitamins, carbon, and amino acids. Their recommendations included the use of The analyses indicated that the performance of members of the P. aeruginosa populations in each hospital closely followed the performance of the quality control strain, P. aeruginosa ATCC 27853, when tested on each lot of Mueller-Hinton medium. (9) Additionally, this media has been used in standardized antimicrobial disk susceptibility testing, as described by Bauer, Kirby, et al. The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute, which establishes the best international laboratory standards, adopted the Kirby-Bauer technique using Mueller-Hinton agar as the gold standard for antibiotic testing. Mueller and Hinton developed Mueller Hinton Agar in 1941 to be a protein free medium for isolating pathogenic strains of Neisseria . Mueller Hinton Agar media contains Beef Extract, Acid Hydrolysate of Casein, Starch and Agar. Mueller Hinton Media contains Beef Extract, Acid Hydrolysate of Casein, Starch and Agar.
