Halo Zone in Test of Antimicrobial Sensitivity

What is the Halo Zone in sensitivity test of antimicrobial?
Thanks for the question. I believe the Halo Zone in the sensitivity test for a antimicrobial is the region in which bacteria are not able to grow. The bacteria are not able to grow since the antibiotic prevents their growth.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have more questions.
