Aeromonas species occur widely in soil and water where these species cause disease in fish and amphibians. Also found in untreated and chlorinated drinking water, raw food and raw milk. It is observed that the major cause of gastrointestinal infections by Aeromonas species is because of ingesting infected water. It was noted that the recoveries of the Aeromonas species was very low from fresh foods of animal origin when cultivated on clinical media and difficulties were encountered in distinguishing the A. hydrophila group from the background microflora. Polumbo et al had formulated Starch Ampicillin Agar with starch hydrolysis as the differential trait and ampicillin to suppress the background microflora. Aeromonas Starch DNA Agar Base allows additional selective isolation of Aeromonas based on DNA hydrolysis.
for selective isolation and enumeration of Aeromonas species from food and clinical samples
