    S. Pneumoniae bacteria are encapsulated gram-positive coccus. They are an elongated shaped cell that is arranged in pairs and in short chains and are non- motile and non –sporing organisms. S. pneumonia is cultivated in the anaerobic condition in blood or chocolate agar in thirty-seven degrees celsius and is incubated for twenty-four hours; this increases the bacteria growth by five to ten percent. The characteristic of the culture of S. pneumonia is a small smooth colony with alpha hemolysis.…
