Biochem/physiol Actions

MacConkey Agar is considered as a selective and differential media. It is useful in differentiating between the lactose fermenting and non-lactose fermenting bacteria. Thus, it is useful in the isolation of gram negative bacteria. Primary plating medium is used to differentiate members of the coliform group.

Preparation Note
