International MIC distribution website - changes!

The website showing MIC distributions from all over the world has been updated with more MICs, more zone diameters and a partly new layout.
The previous version of the website listed EUCAST clinical breakpoints and other items very specific to EUCAST. The new version emphasises the fact that the distributions are truly international, that ECOFFs (epidemiological cut-off values) are not dependant on where or by whom they were generated - they are now listed as "International MIC distributions". We encourage colleagues from every part of the world to share their MIC- (and when relevant, their inhibition zone diameter) distributions with us. We remind you never to infere resistance rates from these distributions since they include data from multiple sources, geographical areas and time periods.
