Product Code TM 1942
Acetamide Agar, Modified is formulated as per recommendation of Standard Methods for 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.
