Clostridial species are gram-positive, spore-forming rods and one of the major causes of food poisoning/ gastro-intestinal illnesses. They naturally occur in the soil. Among the family there are many species like Clostridium tetani, which is causative agent of tetanus; Clostridium botulinum produces one of the most potent toxins and Clostridium perfringens responsible of wound infections and diarrhea cases. Many bacterial pathogens possess toxins as virulence factor to damage the host. C. perfringens produces CPE enterotoxin as major virulence factor, which is secreted upon invasion of the host gut leads to food poisoning and other gastrointestinal illnesses. There are several solid media devised for quantitation of C. perfringens. Due to incorporation of the one or more antibiotics leads to media more selective that inhibit certain anaerobes or facultative anaerobes. Armon and Payment formulated M-CP Agar Base. Membrane filtration technique used for water sample. Directive of the Council of the European Union 98/83/EC recommended M-CP Agar Base for isolation and enumeration of Clostridium perfringens.
