Terminology: Antibacterial spectrum

Antibacterial spectrum

“Antimicrobial Spectrum” is defined as the range of different microorganisms that an antibiotic or antimicrobial agent inhibits or kills them.

Antimicrobial agents showing efficacy against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria strains are commonly referred as to have a “Broad Antimicrobial Spectrum”.

Conversely, antimicrobial agents that manifest antimicrobial efficacy against just for few bacteria strains are said to have a “Narrow Antimicrobial Spectrum”.
