m-Kleb Agar Base is recommended for isolation and differentiation of Klebsiella species by membrane filtration method Klebsiella pneumoniae strains are widely distributed in the environment and contribute to biochemical and geochemical process. K. pneumoniae bacteria may be oppurtunistic pathogens that can give rise to bacteremia, pneumonia, urinary tract, and several other types of human infection. It also proves to be the source of lung infections that generally occur in patients with debilitating conditions such as alcoholism, diabetes mellitus, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. K. pneumoniae are also excreted in the faeces of many healthy humans and animals, and they are readily detected in sewage polluted waters.
K. pneumoniae produces a deep blue to bluish green coloured colony thereby aiding in the easy detection of the organisms. Most of the frequently encountered gram-negative faecal contaminants are inhibited on this media using a selective supplement.
