DECARBOXYLASE AGAR BASE

Product Code TM 084

  • Description

    Decarboxylase Agar Base is formulated as described by Moeller to differentiate bacteria on the basis of their ability to decarboxylate the amino acids. The medium is useful for the identification of the Enterobacteriaceae and other gram negative bacilli. Production of ornithine decarboxylase is especially useful for differentiating Enterobacter and Klebsiella species as the former produces this enzyme and are motile while latter are non-motile and do not synthesize this enzyme.
