Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market is predicted to value over USD 4.6 billion by 2028 end with a CAGR of over 5.4% during the forecast period 2022 to 2028.

Antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) is a method for evaluating which antibiotics are effective against a certain pathogen or group of bacteria. When bacteria and fungi are unable to live in the presence of one or more antimicrobial medicines, they are considered sensitive. It's a method for figuring out which antibiotics are the most efficient against microorganisms in the lab. It's used to see which antimicrobials prevent bacteria, fungi, and other pathogens from multiplying and causing disease. After bacteria, fungi, and viruses have been identified in a culture of the specimen, susceptibility testing is performed. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) is used to examine the efficacy of various antibiotics on bacteria, as well as antifungal and antiviral species, and to see if bacteria have evolved resistance to specific medicines. The findings of antimicrobial susceptibility testing test can be used to help choose the drug(s) that are most likely to be beneficial in treating a disease. Antibiotics are available to them. Regular antimicrobial susceptibility testing is performed to ensure that antibiotics are utilised effectively. It determines the lowest concentrations of new or existing antimicrobial medicines that prohibit consistent and detectable growth of the bacterium under research in certain test circumstances. It entails finding drug resistance in some of the most common diseases as well as determining the susceptibility of preferred treatments for certain infections. Furthermore, increased use of antimicrobial susceptibility testing by biopharmaceutical, biotechnological, and pharmaceutical companies, as well as overuse and misuse of antibiotics leading to antimicrobial resistance (AMR), is a major factor driving the antimicrobial susceptibility testing market's significant growth.

Antimicrobial susceptibility testing of significant bacterial isolates is an important function of the clinical microbiology laboratory. During testing, the purpose is to detect possible drug resistance in common pathogens and to ensure susceptibility to drugs of choice for particular infections. The most widely used testing method is broth microdilution or rapid automated instrument methods that use commercially available materials and devices. Methods including disk diffusion and gradient diffusion can provide flexibility and possibly reduce costs. There are advantages and disadvantages to every method, including organisms that might be accurately tested. All methods provide some qualitative assessment (e.g., minimum inhibitory concentration), but some provide quantitative information (e.g., minimum inhibitory concentration). Antimicrobial resistance mechanisms are generally found to be accurately detected by current testing methods.
