  • Description

    Bacillus cereus Selective Agar Base is used for selective isolation and enumeration of Bacillus cereus. It is also recommended by the ISO committee for the enumeration of Bacillus cereus. Bacillus cereus is ubiquitously present in soil, food stuff, water and dust. It is considered as the most commonly encountered, important species in clinical laboratories, from majority of other Bacillus species as under favorable conditions, the organism multiplies and cause gastrointestinal illness. This medium differentiates B.cereus from other bacteria on the basis of lecithinase activity, mannitol fermentation and resistance to polymyxin. Lecithinase activity is the key reaction in differential identification of B.cereus.
