  6. Disk diffusion of anaerobic bacteria in 16-20 hours (9 December, 2021; at 8AM, 1PM and 4PM CET to satisfy different time zones; link below).
    EUCAST has developed a disk diffusion method for AST of 5 anaerobic species (Bacteroides spp, Prevotella spp, Fusobacterium acnes, Clostridium perfringens and Cutibacterium acnes).
    Methodology, QC criteria for ATCC strains and a reading guide has already been published on the website (for anyone who would like to start trimming their method). Breakpoints and disk diffusion correlates will soon follow.
