Product Code TM 2079
Fermentation Medium for Staphylococcus and Micrococcus, w/ 0.2% Agar is used for studying the fermentation characteristics of Staphylococcus species in accordance with FDA BAM, 1998. Staphylococci and Micrococci are the most frequently encountered cocci in the clinical laboratory. Both are gram positive and catalase positive. Ability to ferment glucose has served as the basis for differentiating staphylococci from the micrococci that lacks the ability to ferment glucose. Staphylococcus aureus is a primary pathogen, which may be associated with severe infection. Micrococci are generally strict aerobes and can reduce nitrate. Fermentation Medium for Staphylococcus and Micrococcus is recommended for differentiation of these two organisms on the basis of glucose fermentation.
for studying fermentation by Staphylococcus species in accordance with FDA BAM, 1998.
