Genus Achromobacter
Yabuuchi and Yano 1981
Gram-negative, straight rods with rounded ends. Nonsporeforming. Motile
with 1-20 peritrichous flagella. Obligately aerobic and nonfermentative.
Oxidase and catalase positive. Nonhalophilic, nonhemolytic, and
nonpigmented. Carbohydrates usually are not utilized. Urease, DNase,
phenylalanine deaminase, lysine and ornithine decarboxylase, arginine
dihydrolase, and gelatinase negative.
