  • Catalase Test Lab Report

    During the first lab period, The gram stain show that the unknown bacteria was a gram neative rod shaped microbe. After this step was established, this next part was to select the best tests and mediums to determine the unknown bacteria.This medium are use to test the metabolic characteristics of the unknown bacteria. In order to identify the unknown bacteria from other bacterias the following medium was used: MSA plate, SIM plate, nitrate reduction test Nutrient gelatin and Urease broth. For Metabolic tests, only Catalase test were performed on the unknown bacteria. These tests were best use gram negative bacteria to indicated what the unknown microbe is. For the Catalase test, the use of hydrogen preoxide on the sample of the unknown bacteria show a positive result. This mean that the bacteria is a gram negative rod shape bacteria that test positive for calalase test. Catalase test the microoganism for the enzyme catalase. The mannitol salt (MSA) agar is use to see of the organism is able to ferment mannitol in the agar.Also, only organism that able to grow in high salt concentration will be able to thrive in this agar. A positive result is when the agar change to yellow. MSA plate pH indicator is phenol red. When the organism release an acidic byproduct, the pH is lower therefore casuse the organism to change color. A negative result is when there is no acidic byproduct to lower the pH. This agar will not change color and remain red. The unknown bacteria remain…

  • Desulfovibrio: Macconkey Agar Or EMB Agars?

    Desulfovibrio is gram negative bacteria. There are media that will be useful in isolating this organism. The best option for a gram negative bacteria would be using a selective media specifically MacConkey agar or EMB agar. These agars are used to isolate gram negative bacteria because the crystal violet in the MacConkey agar will not allow the growth of gram positive bacterium making it a good media to isolate Desulfovibrio. If that selective media does not work then another media is to use a…

  • Pedicure Spa Case Study

    Question: How much bacteria will be found in each pedicure spa? Hypothesis: If I swab multiple pedicure spas using a test kit, streak plating, and colony morphology, then I will find the presence of bacteria is unsafe because cleaning practices are not followed properly. Procedures Determine the five pedicure spas in which you will obtain samples from Give each pedicure spa an anonymous name (Ex: Spa A, Spa B, Spa C) Type up an approval letter stating what you will be doing and what it is for…

  • Sterile Analysis Lab Report Sample

    The lab instructor issued out a test tube labeled with letter ‘I’, which consisted of two unknown bacteria, Gram-positive or Gram-negative that were streaked from a pure culture. Sterile techniques were followed while performing precise instructions as stated in the referenced Laboratory Manual. Example 1: The first procedure performed was done by isolating a pure culture from the mixture onto a solid Trypticase soy agar (TSA) media. Sterile technique was done by flaming the loop until it…

  • Phenylalanine Deaminase Test Lab Report

    The possibilities of two unknown microorganisms lead to phenylalanine deaminase test. The detection of phenylalanine deaminase enzyme was carried out by adding ferric chloride to phenyaline slant. When ferric chloride was added to phenylalanine deaminase tube, it turned into army green color( positive result) which indicated that unknown microorganism contains phenylalanine deaminase enzyme. On the other hand, no color change in the slant indicates negative result for this test. The choices…

  • Essay On Gram Staining

    INTRODUCTION There have been multiple staining techniques before the Gram stain came about in 1883. These old staining techniques brought about issues because they stained both the tissue and the cells so it was hard to differentiate between the two. Christian Gram is the inventor of the gram stain and found this technique when he was looking at Streptococcus pneumoniae in the lung tissue of people and animals (1). When working with these tissues, he found that this bacterium would take up a…

  • Biochemical Unknown Lab

    Biochemical Unknown I. Introduction Cultural Characteristics or morphology and biochemical tests can be used to identify and classify microorganism. By culturing microorganism in nutrient broth, slants, and on nutrient agar plates, the cultural characteristics or morphology can be determined. In this lab, the test tube 2 was incubated in a nutrient broth. The pigmentation of the tube was yellow. The media for test tube 2 was turbid. There were a few sediment on the bottom of the broth. In…

  • Alcaligenes Faecalis Lab Report

    After, then other biochemical tests were performed that were specific to the gram- negative bacteria to start the identification process of the unknown. The results of the gram negative tests lead to the identification of the bacteria Alcaligenes faecalis. The gram stain procedure was the first test performed by isolating a colony from the pure culture streak plate. The gram stain was followed orderly right from the referenced laboratory manual. The test resulted to be Gram- Negative bacteria…

  • Unknown Bacterial Isolates Lab Report

    The aim of this experiment is to identify and classify of an unknown bacterial isolate. Morphological and Biological test were preformed to identifiy the isolates characteristics. The following characteristics were tested: gram-stain, motility, morphology, hemolysis, lactose fermetation, mannitol fermentation, osmotolerance, aesculin hydrolysis, starch hydrolysis, gelatine hydrolysis, amino acid decarboxylation, lipid hydrolysis, lactose fermetation, casein digestion, catalase enzyme production,…
