Flashcards in FA Gram Stain Taxonomy Deck (21)
What are the gram positive cocci?
Staph and strep
What are the gram negative cocci?
What are the gram positive rods?
(Mycobacterium - acid fast)
(Gardnerella - Gram variable)
What are the respiratory gram negative rods?
What are the zoonotic gram negative rods?
There are 13 enteric gram negative rods. Tell me 5. In micro, assume gram negative rod unless you have memorized it to be something else.
(learn rest later I guess)
What are the gram positive branching filamentous bacteria?
Nocardia (weakly acid fast)
What are the pleomorphic gram negatives?
What are the spiral spirochetes (which I guess you consider to be gram negative...)?
What bacteria has a sterol-containing membrane and no cell wall?
Mycoplasma (gram invisible!)
What bacteria has a my colic acid containing membrane and high lipid content?
There are 6 bugs that do not gram stain well. These Rascals May Microscopically Lack Color
This bug does not gram stain well because it is too thin to be visualized.
How do you visualize Treonemes?
Dark-field microscopy and fluorescent antibody staining
What intracellular parasite can't be gram stained?
What bacteria can't be gram stained do to the high lipid content of its cell wall?
How do you detect mycobacteria and why does that work?
high lipid content in cell wall deterred by carbolfuchsin in ACID FAST stain
What bacteria can't be detected by gram stain because it has no cell wall?
Why can't you see Legionella on gram stain?
What do you use to visualize Legionella?
