The concentrations of antimicrobial agents in body fluids, most notably serum or plasma, are used to regulate therapy to ensure effective dosing (especially with oral agents where GI absorption is in question), to monitor accumulation to help minimize toxicity, and to help evaluate the pharmacokinetics of new agents. Both peak and trough levels obtained immediately after dosing or immediately prior to new dosing, respectively, may be monitored.

Specimens collected just before or within 15 minutes of the next
antibiotic dose represent the trough level. Specimens obtained
within 15-30 minutes after the end of IV infusion, or 45-60
minutes after an IM injection, or 90 minutes after oral intake
represent the peak level.
