This 2014 image depicts Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (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 species, on the left plate was susceptible to the antibiotics on the discs, and was therefore, unable to grow adjacent to the discs. The plate on the right had been inoculated with a Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) bacterium that proved to be resistant to almost all of the antibiotics tested, and was therefore, able to grow nearer the discs.
