The minimal inhibitory concentration for tobramycin and gentamicin against 488 clinical isolates of Enterobacteriaceae, Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas spp. were obtained on three different solid media.

It was shown that tobramycin was significantly disfavored relative to gentamicin by PDM agar compared to MH and DST agar.
