Table 2 MIC distributions of 9 antibiotics for lactic acid bacteria isolated from three different African fermented food products. Antibiotic MIC was determined by the broth microdilution method

From: Genotypic characterization and safety assessment of lactic acid bacteria from indigenous African fermented food products
