Aeromonas is ubiquitous in the environment, present in all times of water worldwide, as well as in food and soil. There are approximately 16 different species in this genus, the best known of which is Aeromonas hydrophila. Physiologically, Aeromonas are similar to bacteria in the coliform group and can be isolated from similar environments including aquatic environments, including freshwater, estuarine, brackish, and salt waters. Some members of this group of bacteria have been implicated in human disease, although not all strains appear to be pathogenic to human. Aeromonas species can cause various enteric symptoms in children and adults. This medium is used for differential and selective isolation of Aeromonas species from other gram negative species, from water samples using membrane filter technique.
