Selective & Differential Media • Selective media: contains chemical components that inhibit certain bacteria, favors the growth of others. Blood agar is differential; hemolytic v. non ‐ hemolytic • Differential media: can visualize metabolic differences between bacterial types. Mannitol Salt agar is differential & selective; differentiates mannitol fermenters (yellow) & non ‐ fermenters. Eosin Methylene Blue (EMB) is a medium that tends to select for the growth of Gram-negative or no hemolysis reaction. This classification of hemolytic patterns is used primarily with Streptococci, but is sometimes applied to other organisms. D Streptococci (enterococci) are b-hemolytic on horse and rabbit blood agar but a-hemolytic on.
It is a selective and differential agent since only Group D streptococci can preform esculin hydrolysis in the presence of bile. what reaction turns the eosin methylene blue agar dark blue or black (E. coli growth green) eosin Y and methylene blue. While these are just a few examples of how types of media can help microbiologists distinguish between microbes, there are many other types of selective and differential media. For example: Selective media: YM agar selects for microbes that grow in low pH conditions such as yeasts and molds. Eosin methylene blue selects for Gram-negative organisms.

For the other agar plates--SM plate,mannitol salt agar (MSA) plate, DNAse agar plate—an inoculation line down the center of the plate is adequate for growth results. Incubate media at 37°C. Run oxidase and catalase tests on plate culture. Gram stain the isolate to get shape and arrangement as well as gram reaction.

All except two of strains of hemolytic streptococci isolated from man, other animals, milk, and cheese have been classified into five groups, which bear a definite relationship to the sources of the cultures. These broad groups may be subdivided into specific types by methods discussed by: Many other bacteria besides streptococci can be β hemolytic, including Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Listeria monocytogenes, etc., and hemolytic reactions can also be a useful diagnostic tool for these organisms.
no (γ) hemolysis: No apparent hemolytic activity or discoloration is produced (also called gamma hemolysis). Eosin methylene blue agar is a differential medium used for the detection Other streptococci are pathogenic. For example, Three types of hemolytic reactions can be observed on blood agar plates (nutrient agar supplemented with a 5% concentration of sheep blood).
Bacitracin differential disks are used to presumptively identify Group A, beta-hemolytic streptococci from other beta-hemolytic streptococci. The combination of SXT sensitivity increases the accuracy of the results. Principle. Bacitracin is an antibiotic isolated from Bacillus subtilis.
-the hemolytic reaction is enhanced when bloob agar plates are streaked and simultaneously stabbed to show subsurface hemolysis by streptolysin O in an environment with reduced oxygen tension.
Based on the hemoglobin patterns on the blood agar, the pathogenic beta-hemolytic streptococci may be differentiated from other streptococci. Eosin methylene blue (EMB) agar selects for which group of bacteria. Explain.

Include microorganisms (ex: viruses, bacteria, fungi) microbial proteins. Section I. Outline of the Work Flow for the Stretococcus Laboratory.
If the culture is an unidentified gram-positive coccus, an Enterococcus, viridans Streptococcus, or of unknown identity (basically includes all cultures other than pneumococci, ß-hemolytic streptococci, and nutritionally variant streptococci), inoculate the following ate a trypticase soy 5% sheep blood agar plate.
Blood Agar: Hemolytic Reactions. When streaked on Blood Agar, many species of bacteria cause hemolysis – i.e., destruction of the erythrocytes (and hemoglobin) in the medium.
Hemolytic reactions are generally classified as alpha, beta or gamma according to the appearance of zones around isolated colonies growing on or in the medium. Beta hemolysis: The colony is.
The first selective ingredient in this agar is bile, which inhibits the growth of Gram-positives other than enterococci and some streptococci species. The second selective ingredient is sodium azide. This chemical inhibits the growth of Gram-negatives. The differential ingredient is esculin.
Methylene blue was bactericidal for the strains of hemolytic streptococci that fail to reduce it, but neither bacteriostatic nor bactericidal for the strains that caused its reduction. Full Text The Full Text of this article is available as a PDF (K).
The type of hemolytic reaction displayed on blood agar has long been used to classify the streptococci. β-Hemolysis is associated with complete lysis of red cells surrounding the colony, whereas α-hemolysis is a partial or “greening” hemolysis associated with reduction of red cell hemoglobin.

-B-hemolytic strain of S. aureus is streaked down the middle of agar plate -test strain of streptococci are then streaked perpendicular to S. auerus if test strain produces CAMP substance, an arrowhead-shaped zone of increased hemolysis will appear at the intersection.
The glycerol (substrate) (carbohydrate) in the BAGG broth is used by Strep. faecalis to form acid end products. The indicator in the broth, brom thymol purple, will turn yellow in the presence of acids indicating a positive reaction.
is a complex selective and differential medium. it contains peptone, lactose,sucrose, and the dyes eosin Y and methylene blue. the petone provide a complex niture of carbon nitrogen and other nutritional components.
the purpose dyes is twofold 1). they inhibit the growht of gram-positive organisms and 2)they react with vigorous lactose fermetners ansn turn the growth dark purple or black. A sterile disk impregnated with bacitracin is placed on the first sector of an isolation plate before incubation.
A zone of inhibition (area with no growth) will be seen around the disk after incubation if the organism is a Group A beta-hemolytic Streptococcus. Other beta-hemolytic streptococci are resistant to (not killed by) bacitracin.
A clear, colorless zone appears around the colonies, in which the RBCs have undergone complete lysis. Streptococcus pyogenes, S. agalactiae, and several other species of streptococci are β other bacteria besides streptococci can be β hemolytic, including Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Listeria monocytogenes, etc., and hemolytic reactions can also.
Streptococci are non-motile, microaerophilic, Grampositive spherical bacteria (cocci).They often occur as chains or pairs and are facultative or strict anaerobes. Streptococci give a negative catalase test, while staphylococci are catalase-positive. The cell division of Streptococci species involves two separate biosynthetic events: peripheral cell-wall elongation and septal-wall synthesis.

Because of this, it is standard procedure to streak a blood plate and then stab the loop into the agar to provide an area of lower oxygen concentration where the streptolysins can more effectively break down the blood cells.
