English translation:this must be from a table:
Explanation:
two germs (bacteria) were found, identified for simplicity in the table as 1 and 2 (at the top of the sheet you normaly would find their name spelled out); then you have a column of Wirkstoff (agents, antibiotics in fact), one of which is Bactrim. Then under the column 1 and under the column 2 each, for each of those germs the sensitivity is given: S = sensitive (the germ will be killed by the agent) or R = resitent ( the germ will not be killed by the agent) or I = intermediate (if you'r lucky, the germ is killed by the agent).
Greetings,

Nikolaus
