  • Description

    Urea Agar is used to detect urease production. Urea Agar described by Christensen detected urease activity by all rapidly urease-positive Proteus species and other slower urea positive members of the Enterobacteriaceae. This was accomplished by- adding glucose to the medium, decreasing the peptone concentration and decreasing the buffering system, as a less buffered medium detects even smaller amount of alkali. This medium may also be used in the detection of urease activity in other gram-negative organisms, such as Pseudomonas, Pasteurella, and Brucella. Webb, et al. also reported that Urea Agar is useful in differentiating Cryptococcus from other yeast species.
