  • Description

    Group B Streptococcus (GBS) infection is a common bacterial infection that is rarely serious in adults, but can be life threatening to newborns. Group A Streptococci commonly causes strep throat and rarely, a potentially deadly destruction of flesh. Anaerobic Blood Agar Base with Neomycin Supplement is used for the isolation of Group A and Group B Streptococci from clinical specimens. This medium was originally formulated by Blanchette and Lawrence, by addition of the antibiotic Neomycin to sheep blood agar. This addition improved the detection of Group A & B Streptococci, while inhibiting the growth of the other accompanying haemolytic organisms.
