bacterial culture media: classification, types, uses,b. enrichment culture medium. enrichment medium is used to increase the relative concentration of certain microorganisms in the culture prior to plating on solid selective medium. unlike selective media, enrichment culture is typically used as a broth medium. enrichment media are liquid media that also serves to inhibit commensals in the clinical specimen..protocol: phage enrichment,iii. processing enrichment cultures . 1. remove 10 ml of the enrichment culture and place into a sterile 15 ml falcon tube, centrifuge at 8,000 x g, 10 min. filter sterilize the resulting supernatant through a 0.22 µm syringe filter, store at 4 ºc. a. even if an enrichment culture appears turbid, it.

multicellular gliding filaments were observed among high numbers of other bacteria on the bottom of anaerobic marine enrichment culture flasks with sulfate and acetate or benzoate as substrates. an electronmicroscopical grid fixed in a glass tube was used as a sieve to wash the filaments free from the bulk of smaller bacteria with sterile sulfide-reduced medium.
this basic technique used for bacteria (and other microorganisms like fungi) especially from soil, helps in obtaining isolated colonies where dilutions prevent crowding of colonies. requirements: 1. soil samples and sieve (2 mm pore). 2. water blanks – 99 ml and 9 ml. 3. pipettes (5 ml graduated). 4. oven. 5. burrell’s wrist action shaker. 6.
blood agar is an enriched medium in which nutritionally-rich whole blood supplements the basic nutrients. chocolate agar is enriched with heat-treated blood (40-45°c), which turns brown and gives the medium the color for which it is named. selective media are used for the growth of only selected microorganisms.
isolation procedure. add 1.0 ml of inoculum to 50 ml of enrichment medium in a 250-ml conical flask with cotton plug. the co2 in the at- mosphere is the source of carbon for the bacteria. growth in the enrich- ment medium is evidenced by turbidity and precipitation of brownish- red precipitate of ferric iron compounds.
pirquet's theory of allergy and eventually for calmette and guerin's work on tuberculous vaccination. the techniques developed by koch (sterilization, pure culture, staining reactions) have served over the years as major tools in the field of bacteriology and medical microbiology. koch's work started a golden age for medical microbiology.
the culture conditions can be appropriately modified to isolate certain types of microorganisms. the types of organisms that can be isolated by use of enrichment methods is given in table 19.4. for instance, thermophiles can be isolated by using high temperature while acidophilus can be isolated in acidic ph.
colony counts of 50 strains of p. pseudomallei and recovery studies with 1 soil strain in 60 simulated soil samples demonstrated that enrichment with trypticase soy broth incorporating 5 mg of crystal violet per liter and 20 mg of colistin per liter (cvcb) and subculture to ashdown medium supported the growth of all 50 strains and produced the highest recovery rates with the greatest suppression of other soil flora.
methods are described for the observation, enrichment and isolation (from various freshwater samples) of bacteria of the genera planctomyces and pirella. because immature buds were easily dislodged by shearing forces, slide culture techniques and direct microscopy of the budding process are recommended. an “auxanographic” technique to detect
the aseptic technique. asepsis can be defined as the absence of infectious microorganisms. however, the term is usually applied to any technique designed to keep unwanted microorganisms from contaminating sterile materials. first period material: 1. seven 9-ml dilution tubes of sterile saline 2. seven nutrient agar plates 3. 1.0 ml and 0.1 ml pipets 4.
enrichment culture techniques, in which particular micro- organisms are isolated on the basis of their specific metabolic capability, are able to turn up organisms of great metabolic variety. when microorganisms isolated in this fashion are subsequently subjects of experimentation in a teaching bio-
enrichment and isolation: pure culture work: source material: broth enrichment: plating for isolation: stock cultures: characterization & identification •consider inoculum: what organisms may or may not be present. •may pre-treat inoculum, e.g., by heat-shocking. •usually is selective. •may be skipped altogether.
the spread plate culture method is one of the commonly used culture technique for the isolation of microorganisms, especially the bacteria, in the laboratory. in spread plate culture technique, a serially diluted specimen containing 2 or more bacteria or microbe (mixed culture) is used which is.....

place all cultures in a test tube rack on the cleaned work surface. 3. transferring cultures and incubation. stand or sit at the bench with all of the materials in reach. to use aseptic technique to transfer the bacteria to the plate, first flame the loop until it is glowing orange - and then allow it to cool in the air.
explanation: the enrichment culture technique is useful for the detection and isolation of those microorganisms which are capable of growing on a particular nutrient medium. for e.g., cellulose producers grow on nutrient medium supplied with cellulose.
continuous enrichment techniques are especially valuable in isolating organisms to be used in a continuous-flow commercial process. organisms isolated by batch enrichment and purification on solid media frequently perform poorly in continuous culture, whereas continuous enrichment provides an
in the final series of streaks, well separated individual colonies of bacteria can be obtained. 2. enrichment and selective media: bacteria can be isolated by growing in enrichment or selective media. in these media, substances which inhibit the growth of unwanted bacteria is added. so there is a growth of only the bacteria which is wanted. 3.
streaking is a technique used to isolate a pure strain from a single species of microorganism, often bacteria. samples can then be taken from the resulting colonies and a microbiological culture can be grown on a new plate so that the organism can be identified, studied, or tested.the streaking is done using a sterile tool, such as a cotton swab or commonly an inoculation loop.

a variety of techniques has been developed for the isolation of microorganism, mainly the bacteria, from the specimen or from the cultures and streak plate technique is among the most widely used technique to obtain discrete & well developed colonies of microbes. the culture techniques are commonly used in the laboratory for various purposes
one of the beneficial outgrowths of microbiological investigations in the laboratory has been the need to use aseptic techniques for the growth and identification of specific microorganisms. culture techniques were derived from the necessity to rapidly grow and accurately identify potential pathogens in order to treat individuals or take appropriate steps to prevent outbreaks of disease, epidemics, or
instead of embedding microorganisms into agar, as is done with the pour plate method, liquid cultures are spread on the agar surface. an advantage of spreading a plate over the pour plate method is that cultures are never exposed to 45°c (i.e. melted agar temperatures).
