This 2014 image depicts Centers for Disease Control (CDC) microbiologist Kitty Anderson; holding up two Petri dish culture plates growing bacteria in the presence of discs containing various antibiotics. The isolate; i.e.; bacterial specie; on the left plate appears to be susceptible to the antibiotics on the discs; and is therefore; unable to grow adjacent to the discs. The plate on the right was inoculated with a Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) bacterium that proved to be resistant to almost all of the antibiotics tested; and is therefore; able to grow nearer the discs.
