Any germs that grow from the culture will be tested against a variety of medicines to find which medicine works best (sensitivity testing). VITEK 2 is a fully automated system that performs bacterial identification and antibiotic susceptibility testing. The system includes an ADVANCED EXPERT SYSTEM (AES) that analyzes MIC patterns and detects phenotypes for most organisms tested.
