The MIC and MBC values of the (M) extract of PN (fruit-rinds) against the microorganisms tested using microdilution assay
Microorganisms P.a S.fe En.c S.d P.v E.c B.c S.a S.t P.m C.g C.a
MIC (μg/ml) 50 200 >12800 800 0. 78 3.12 200 3.12 100 100 25 >12800
MBC(μg/ml) 1600 1600 >12800 6400 1.56 12.5 800 12.5 400 400 200 >12800

Values are the mean of three independent determination; the variation was less than 1/100 000. E.c: E coli; S.a: S.aureus; P.V: P.vulgaris; S.d: S.dysenteriae; En. c: E.cloacae; S.fe: S.feacalis; P.a: P.aeruginosa; P.m: P.mirabilis; S.t: S.typhi; B.c: B.cereus; C.a: C.albicans; C.g: C.glabrata. MIC: minimal inhibition concentration (μg/ml). MBC: minimal bactericidal concentration (μg/ml).
