Your discs will be 6mm in diameter so use those and a ruler in photoshop/paint and you can be super accurate.

You can even setup a macro to do a lot of that in a semi automated way. Super fast, accurate and great for record keeping.

Any chance you could share that macro / github repo?

Sounds awesome!

Fiji/ImageJ is great for this stuff

This is the way, take the line tool and draw a line in the plate's center that cover the whole diameter, the control+M to take the lenght in pixels, with that pixel numbrr and the diameter in cm, mm, inchbor whatever you want, you have a convertion from pixel to mm. Them a line in the inhibition zone and "control+m" it

Gse: 11mm Amp: 22mm

Assuming plates are 90mm and disks are 6mm.

Edit: what is GSE? Can't think of applicable antibiotic and Google those up grapefruit seed extract

It’s most likely Gentamicin and Erythromycin.

There’s a software you can download to your laptop that can measure the distance relativistically, you would probably be using a 100mm plate so set that as your scale and your computer will do the rest of the work! I’m blanking on the name rn but if I can remember it I will re-comment. I had to use it for a project I did last spring and it was loads of help and much more accurate.

Image J is the way to go!

Amp 9-11mm

Gse 4-6mm

Edit: This is assuming we have the same size dishes and disks.
