  • Description

    Enterococci are more resistant to chlorine in water, hence are better indicators of sewage pollution than Escherichia coli. Until 1984, members of the genus Enterococcus were classified as Group D Streptococci. Upon genomic DNA analysis, a seperate genus status was provided to them. Azide Dextrose Broth was initially formulated by Rothe, Mullmann and Seligmann for quantitative determination of Enterococci in water, foods, sewage and other materials suspected of contamination with sewage. Azide Dextrose Broth w/ BCP is similar in composition to Azide Dextrose Broth with the addition of bromocresol purple. This medium is recommended by the ISO Committee for the detection and enumeration of faecal Streptococci in water as per ISO 7899-1:1984.
