Bacteremia is most commonly diagnosed by blood culture, in which a sample of blood is incubated in a medium that promotes bacterial growth. Anaerobic bacteria thrive in the environment with limited amount of oxygen or no oxygen at all. Some of these bacteria are killed when exposed to oxygen, however others can survive with or without oxygen. Some anaerobic bacteria cause illness, while others pose no problems to humans or may be helpful. Kracke Blood Culture Medium was developed by Kracke and Teasley for culturing anaerobic bacteria from blood in bacteremia infection. The medium can also be used for maintaining the cultures isolated from blood and for carrying stock cultures.
