Vibrio Detection
Vibrios are motile, curved or comma-shaped bacilli and have a single polar flagella with sheet proteins. They are often found in open water, freshwater and saltwater.
Introduction to Microbial Media
An introduction to microbial media types, uses and applications. Includes formulations and product selection guide.
Lactobacilli Basics, Testing & Identification
Information about lactobacilli, rod-shaped, Gram-positive, fermentative, facultative anaerobic or microaerophilic organotrophs. The lactobacillus organtroph belongs to the lactic acid bacteria group.
Clostridia Diagnostic
Clostridia are relatively large, gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria that can undergo only anaerobic metabolism.
Detection and Identification of Campylobacter
Campylobacter grows only on complex media that have been amended with diverse essential amino acids and supplements. We offer a broad range of specific agars and broths for the detection, identification, and cultivation of Campylobacter.
Differentiation of Escherichia coli from coliforms
There are many other methods of detection to indicate the presence of E. coli. Review common tests and biochemical reactions for this contaminant.
Antimicrobial Peptides
With bacterial resistance and emerging infectious diseases becoming potential threats to humans, ribosomally synthesized antimicrobial peptides have become a promising focus area in antibiotic research.
Streptococci - Overview of Detection, Identification, Differentiation and Cultivation Techniques
Streptococci- Overview of Detection, Identification, Differentiation and Cultivation Techniques
Detection and Molecular Identification of Mycobacteria Species
The diseases produced by species of the genus Mycobacterium are important causes of morbidity and mortality in the world. The identification of mycobacteria to the species level is important because of the clinical significance; some species are pathogenic while others
Cell Culture Contamination Troubleshooting
Common Cell Culture Problems: Contamination is easily the most common problem encountered in cell culture laboratories, sometimes with very serious consequence.
Selective Growth Media for Differentiation and Detection of Escherichia coli and Other Coliforms
An article concerning selective growth media for differentiation and detection of Escherichia coli and other coliforms.
Pseudomonas Media and Tests
An article concerning the detection, identification, differentiation, and cultivation of Pseudomonas species.
Overview of Chromogenic Media
Selective media enable faster results and visual confirmation for the detection, identification, and enumeration of microorganisms
Inhibition of Cell Wall Biosynthesis by Antibiotics
The specificity of β-lactam antibacterials is due to their ability to inhibit transpeptidase enzymes and prevent the assembly of the peptidoglycan layer in both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
Salmonella Contamination and Rapid Detection Methods
Salmonella pass through the entire food chain from animal feed, primary production, and into households or food-service establishments.
Media for Staphylococcus Aureus Detection
Chromogenic media enable the selective detection of S. aureus, which produce bluish-green colonies that are clearly differentiated from other species.
