  • Description

    Actinomycetes are gram positive bacteria which show marked chemical and morphological diversity but form a distinct evolutionary line of organisms that range from coccoid and pleomorphic forms to branched filaments. Actinomycetes form an integral part of soil, water and vegetation. Actinomycete development leads to the formation of volatile metabolites. Traces of these volatile metabolites are sufficient to impart disagreeable odour to water or a muddy flavour to fish. Actinomycetes also cause disruptions in wastewater treatment by forming massive growths, which are capable of producing thick foam in the activated sludge process Actinomyces Broth is a modification of the Maintenance Medium formulated by Pine and Watson. Actinomyces Broth is further modified and is recommended for the cultivation and maintenance of anaerobic Actinomycete species.
