    will have a purple butt, and if negative it will have a yellow butt. The Sulfide Indole Motility (SIM) blue cap tube is a semisolid agar and it is also used to determine sulfide production, indole formation and motility in Gram negative bacteria. We will be adding a couple of drops of Kovacs reagent following the incubation of the unknown organism. The indole combines with the reagent and if positive it produces a red layer on top of the medium. If the medium has a hazy growth throughout, then is positive for motility and if it produces Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) a black precipitate is produced. Some bacteria can produce large amounts of stable acids and others produce a smaller amount. In order to know which ones produce more or less we will do the Methyl Red Test (MR) yellow cap tube. We will be adding Methyl Red to the broth after incubation to observe fermentation and it will turn red if pH is below 4.4 (positive result) and will remain yellow if ph is above 6.0 (negative result). The Triple Sugar Iron (TSI) red cap tube is a differential medium. If the organism is able to fermentate any of the three sugars the slant is purple and/or has a yellow butt (negative). If the black precipitate is present, then there was fermentation and H2S was produced. The ability to clear boxylate lysine will produce a purple butt (positive). If the fermentation produced gas the entire slant may be raised above the bottom of the tube. The Simmons citrate green cap tube tests the ability…

    purpose of this experiment was to examine the different growths of minority organisms within a variety of media cultures. These cultures included types of selective, differential, and enriched media and were applied to split sections on the agar plate. Each of the four broth cultures: Escherichia coli, Enterobacter aerogenes, Staphylococcus epidermidis, and Streptococcus faecalis showed observable growth when applied. The different medias will either promote or inhibit the growth of the…

    and AuNPs against the eight chosen S. aureus isolates (four MRSA+VRSA and four MRSA+VSSA) were analyzed through determination of their minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) values, minimum bactericidal concentrations (MBC) values, and MBC/MIC ratio by broth micro-dilution method using 96-well micro-titer plates. To each 50 μL of the antibacterial agent dilution, 50 μL of adjusted bacterial concentration inoculum (5 × 105 CFU/mL) were added in the 96-well micro-titer plates, the growth control…

    Vocabulary 1. Inoculum: a material used for inoculation. 2. Loop (the tool): A wire made into a loop to assist in picking up inoculum from a culture of microorganisms. The loop is also used in the process of cultivating microbes by transferring inoculum for streaking. 3. Agar vs Blood Agar: a. Agar: a growth medium made with agar and other nutrients. The agar allows microorganisms such as fungi and bacteria to be cultured. b. Blood Agar: Blood agar is used for the purpose of cultivation and…

    perform a verity of other environmental requirement/reaction tests. This Includes incubation of the gram positive bacteria on a 6.5% NaCl medium, BHIA (Brain Heart Infusion Agar) medium and a Blood agar medium. Interpretations of these results are as follows. The NaCl 6.5% medium was used to test the bacteria’s ability to survive in a salt rich environment. Most organisms are unable to survive in this type of environment because it is hostile. This test allows us to confirm and narrow down our…

    Materials and Methods Overview The whole study consists of four phases. To start with, the suitable media need to be identified for the growth of Av. paragallinarum. Secondly, the media used in disc diffusion and broth dilution testing need to be validated. This validation process is completed by performing disc diffusion and broth dilution testing of quality control strain on candidate agar or broth. Then, the antimicrobial sensitivity of Av. paragallinarum can be tested on validated media, by…

    were localized in the cytosol, that it might be able to bind to DNA, and that it also existed as a dimer. These findings were crucial, as they were the one of the main reasons why Dr. Liu decided to publish another paper on Lsr2, in which he unveiled the true function of Lsr2 Mtb in 201012. Before diving into his 2010 paper, let's discuss some implications of his 2006 paper. All the results from the 2006 publication indicate that Lsr2 inhibitors may be able to disrupt proper biofilm formation.…

    We first conducted the catalase test. We collected a microscope slide and placed it inside of an empty petri dish, attempting to rule out contamination. We then scoped a sample of our unknown bacteria from the LB agar (Luria Broth), then added a drop of 3% H202 (Hydrogen Peroxide). We observed the slide for a reaction to take place. If a reaction was observed, we knew that the species of our unknown bacteria was able to produce catalase to negate the effects of H202. For the second test, we…
