More than 300 images at VetBact

Over 300 pictures are included in VetBact (you can see thumb nail images of most of them by chosing  Images on the start page). In connection with the latest course in Bacteriology for veterinary students (sep-oct 2011), several new pictures were added in VetBact, for instance:

  • Purple agar plates with maltose for Staphylococcus  aureus subsp. aureus, S. hyicus and S. pseudintermedius. The metod is important to differentiate S. aureus  subsp. aureus from S. pseudintermedius and S. intermedius. All three species are positive for maltose in tube fermentation, but on agar plates, where the conditions are more aerobic, S. pseudintermedius and S. intermedius are negative (or possibly weakly positive).

Colonies of Klebsiella pneumoniae subsp. pneumoniae cultivated on CLED agar.
