  1. The MIC tests were performed by a broth microdilution method according to the European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing standards (EUCAST, http://www.eucast.org). was estimated by three independed biological repetition.
  2. S – sensitive, no acquired resistance. MRS –methicillin-resistant staphylococci. The results are the mean values ± SD (n = 3). All results are statistically significant (P < 0.05).
