New and improved colony pictures

CAMP test of <i>R. equi</i>

CAMP test of Rhodococcus equi against Staphylococcus aureus subsp. aureus

The quality of some of the colony pictures can be improved and we are continuously replacing some of the old ones. For each bacterium, our goal is to have one picture of the entire agar plate and one closeup of the colonies. The plates will be shown under lighting from above and below, when appropriate. We also intend to show the appearance of the colonies on different solid media. Tests based on microbiological interactions lika the CAMP test and the satellitism test (dependence of X and/or V factors) will also be included in VetBact. The result of a CAMP-test has now been included for Rhodococcus equi in VetBact.

    I think the colony pictures can be very useful! I looked at the pictures of hemolysis of Brachyspira hyodysenteriae and Brachyspira pilosicoli and I think it would be even more pedagogic to present a picture of the two bacteria “side by side” to show the difference in hemolysis appearance.
