The person who started the project I am now working on told me to use 2 
microgram penicillin disks when testing Staphylococcus aureus and 100 
microgram nitrofurantoin disks for S. aureus and enterococci (which she 
said was according to NCCLS recommendations???). I checked all NCCLS 
m2-a5,m2-a6 documents from 1993-1997 and CANNOT FIND THE INTERPRETIVE 
STANDARDS 
FOR ZONES OF INHIBITION FOR THOSE PARTICULAR CONCENTRATIONS!!!!!

Is there anywhere that I can find tables for these concentrations (even 
outdated NCCLS documents)????? 

please drop me a line at s666806 at uottawa.ca if you have any possible leads.
Thanks for your time,

Oksana
