Flashcards in BACTE LEC - Functions of Biochemical Media Deck (15):
1

determination of the fermentation reactions of fastidious organisms such as Neisseria, pneumococci, streptococci, and nonsporeforming anaerobes
used for the
detection of bacterial motility
and serve as a culture media for
microorganism maintenance

Cystine Trypticase Agar

2

enteric organisms especially Salmonella arizonae based on their ability to decarboxylate or deaminate lysine and to form hydrogen sulphide (H2S)

Lysine Iron Agar

3

Maintenance of Lactobacilli and for determining the action of bacteria on milk

Litmus Milk Medium

4

Biochemical differentiation of gram-negative enteric bacilli based on the production of arginine dihydrolase

Moeller's Broth

5

Determination of oxidative and fermentative metabolism of carbohydrates by gram-negative bacteria
Identification of gram-negative based on ability to oxidize and ferment specific carbohydrates

Oxidation-Fermentation Medium

6

Detection of indole production by coliforms/enterobacteriacea

Tryptone Broth

7

Differentiates bacteria based on their fermentation of lactose, glucose and sucrose and on the production of hydrogen sulfide.
most frequently used in the identification of the Enterobacteriaceae, although it is useful for other gram-negative bacteria.

Triple Sugar Iron Agar

8

Separating members of the family Enterobacteriaceae and some Streptococcus

Methyl Red Voges Proskauer Medium

9

Detection of urease production, particularly by Proteus vulgaris, Micrococci and
paracolon organisms

Christensen Urea Agar/Stuart Urea Broth

10

Differentiate members of the genera Proteus, Morganella (which were originally classified under the genus Proteus), and Providencia from other Enterobacteriaceae.

Phenylalanine Deaminase Agar

11

Differentiation the members of Enterobacteriaceae on the basis of citrate

Simmon Citrate Agar

12

Isolation and identification of Streptococcus pyogenes

PYR Agar

13

Differentiation of the Shigella species from Escherichia coli and non-fermentative gram-negative bacilli

Acetate Slant

14

Differentiation of non-fermentative gram-negative bacteria, particularly Pseudomonas
aeruginosa.

Acetamide Slant

15

For detecting phenylalanine
deaminase,

phenylalanine deaminase agar
