In the treatment and control of infectious diseases, especially when caused by pathogens that are often drug resistant, sensitivity testing is used to select effective antimicrobial drugs, They are not usually indicated if the sensitivity reactions of a pathogen can be predicted. Sensitivity tests must never be performed on commensal organisms or contaminants because this would mislead the clinician and could result in the patient receiving ineffective and unnecessary drug therapy, causing possible side effects and resistance to other potentially pathogenic organisms. The result of antimicrobial sensitivity tests may also help to identify a pathogen. Some bacterial have characteristic antimicrobial sensitivity patterns. Microspheres prepared with tetracycline loaded antibiotic antimicrobial susceptibility test was carried out and compared with the control disc of the tetracycline.
