Bacillus cereus is widely distributed in nature and can be isolated from a variety of foods. B. cereus causes food poisoning due to the consumption of contaminated rice, eye infections and a wide range of other clinical conditions like abscess formation, meningitis, septicemia and wound infection. Bacillus cereus is a known cause of disease mastitis, especially in ewes and heifers among the veterinarians. BC Motility Test Medium is formulated as per APHA for the cultivation and examination of motility of B. cereus strains.
This medium is inoculated by stabbing down the center with 3 mm loopful of culture and incubated at 18-24 hours at 30?C. Rhizoid strains of B. cereus var mycoides produce characteristic fuzzy growth in semisolid media due to expansion of the filamentous growth but they are not motile by means of flagella.
