TANOMARU, Juliane Maria Guerreiro et al. Antibacterial activity of four mouthrinses containing triclosan against salivary Staphylococcus aureus. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2008, vol.39, n.3, pp.569-572. ISSN 1517-8382. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822008000300030.
The maximum inhibitory dilution (MID) of triclosan-based mouthwashes against 28 Staphylococcus aureus strains was evaluated. Dilutions ranging from 1/10 to 1/655,360 were prepared. Strains were inoculated using a Steers multipoint inoculator. The MID was considered as the maximum dilution capable of inhibiting microorganism growth. The mouthwashes presented different MIDs.
