Acetamide Agar is formulated as per the recommendation of Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater. Gilardi and others showed that a wide variety of non-fermenting organisms were capable of utilizing acetamide by using basal mineral media. However very few organisms growing in the medium metabolize acetamide by the process of deamination (acrylamidase activity). This unique ability is useful in identification of various non-fermenting gram-negative organisms. This ability is shown by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Pseudomonas aciovorans Group III (Achromobacter xylosoxidans) and Alcaligenes odorans.
