Introduction: Klebsiella pneumoniae is a part of the family Enterobacteriaceae. This genus is a gram negative and it has no flagella, which meant that this bacterium is not motile. However, it can move with the use of the current that is produced by the water. This bacterium has the ability to cause destructive change in a man or animals lungs if aspirated. In addition, this is also one of the most contacted pathogen in a Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI) or nosocomial infection. In this scientific journal, all the procedures, methods and technique will be given in a step-by-step to make it easier to follow and understand. By following the procedure, it will lead the way on how the unknown bacterium was able to distinguish. There are five species of Klebsiella that are known to man. All of them can become a serious issue when transmitted into the body. Some Klebsiella is more dangerous than others and some can be transmitted sexually or through the use of fomite. Nevertheless it should be handled with care. Two of the species of the Klebsiella can be used in the laboratory, its either K. oxytoca or K. pneumoniae. At first it was just a test-tube with no label, no description just the fluid that is inside of it. The rational thing to do was observe and check the fluid that is inside to make sure that there was no contamination. Because if contamination is present in the fluid, it will result in an error which will ruin the whole experiment. After careful observation of…
