Antibiotic is the chemical produced by microbes so microbial inoculum depends on ph of medium, age of inoculum, composition of medium.

It is also depends on the secondary metabolites of microbes.

Yuvarani said: (Sep 22, 2014)  
It is based on secondary metabolites.

Because the composition of the medium determines growth of microbes, ph should be optimized in order to maintain cell, antibiotic a secondary metabolite produced at the idiophase of the growth curve (thus age dependent).

It is based on secondary metabolites.
