Streptococcus agalactiae – new colony images on VetBact

Anna och Charlotta

Anna Eriksson and Charlotta Fasth are reading agar plates at the Mastitis Laboratory of the Department of Bacteriology (SVA).

Streptococcus agalactiae cause mastitis in cattle and some other ruminants. We have included new colony images of S. agalactiae on VetBact. The bacteria have been cultivated on bovine blood agar,  a SELMA-plate and purple agar (with lactose). We have also included a picture of the result from a CAMP test of S. agalactiae and S. uberis against Staphylococcus aureus.

Anna Eriksson (SVA) has prepared the SELMA plate and Lise-Lotte Fernström (BVF, SLU) the other agar plates and the CAMP test.
