ABSTRACT
The article informs that Cystic Fibrosis Foundation strongly recommends that Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients should be vaccinated against influenza each year and also laboratories that run in vitro diagnostics (IVD) tests should use agar-based systems. It states that unlike standard disk-diffusion systems the agar gradient diffusion test provides a minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of the antimicrobial being tested and MIC information is vital to physicians.
