In the detection of E. coli and coliforms. Bile and brilliant green extensively inhibit the growth of accompanying flora, in particular gram-positive microorganisms. The presence of E. coli results in fluorescence in the UV. A positive indole test and possibly gas formation from lactose fermentation provide confirmation.
The broth can be used in conjunction with the MPN method for E. coli and coliform enumeration in the water of bathing areas.

Selective growth media for differentiation and detection of Escherichia coli and other coliforms

Normal constituents of the intestinal flora of animals, coliforms are rod-shaped, Gram-negative, non-spore forming facultative anaerobes. They ferment lactose with the production of acid and gas when...
