Efficacies of newly evolved antibiotics are basically assessed under in vitro by antibiotic sensitivity test (ABST). In this study, recently invented universal potentiator was incorporated with various antibiotic discs with control. These antibiotics were challenged with various virulent bacteria (hospital isolates). By ABST, the zone of inhibition measured. The universal potentiator was found to have potentiated the antibiotics up to 3-166%. This discovery has enormous application to the living beings.
