Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an important human pathogen commonly found in nosocomial infections. It successfully combines adaptability to a variety of moist environments with a collection of potent virulence factors. Pseudomonas infections usually occur at any site where moisture tends to accumulate e. g. tracheostomies, in-dwelling catheters, burns, the external ear and weeping cutaneous wounds. Pseudomonas Isolation Agar Base, used for the selective isolation and identification of P. aeruginosa, is a modification of Medium A, originally formulated by King, Ward and Raney. The medium contains pigment-enhancing components and the selective agents, triclosan which selectively inhibits non-pseudomonads. The pigment-enhancers i.e. potassium sulphate and magnesium chloride enhance the blue or blue-green pigment production by P. aeruginosa, thus aiding in its identification.
