Killing kinetics of S. suis exposed to different antibiotics. Exponential (A) or stationary (B) grown S. suis strain 10 was treated with 100-fold MIC of indicated antibiotics over time. The limit of detection was defined as 100 CFU/ml throughout all killing experiments. All lower bacterial numbers were considered as not detectable (n. d.). The values are means of two biological replicates and error bars indicate the standard deviation. An untreated culture without any antibiotic challenge (w/o antibiotic) served as a control.
