  • Description

    Enterococci may be considered an essential part of the autochthonous microflora of humans and animals. Because of its wide distribution, Enterococci can also occur in different food commodities, especially those of animal origin. A wide variety of selective media for Enterococcus has been recommended and used. Pfizer Selective Enterococcus Agar is used for the selective isolation and cultivation of Enterococci. This medium is formulated as per Isenberg, Goldberg and Sampson by reducing the concentration of bile salts and sodium azide from the original formulation. The importance of esculin hydrolysis in differentiating Enterococci and streptococci was first reported by Rochaix as streptococci do not exhibit esculin hydrolysis.
