PROCEDURE
Disperse culture or pathologic material on the medium’s surface, then incubate 18-24 hours at 37 ºC .

RESULTS
Lactose & sucrose negative germs form red colonies surrounded by a bright red zone (
Salmonella,  Proteus, Pseudomonas).
Salmonella typhi
 do not grow on this medium.
Lactose & sucrose positive germs form  yellow colonies, surrounded by yellow zone.(
E. coli, Enterobacter, Citrobater, Klebsiella).

DESCRIPTION
Selective medium for the isolation of
Enterobacteriaceae.from pathological materials.
Salmonellae are not able to ferment lactose or sucrose which can be degraded by other Enterobacteriaceae. Sugars degradation to
acid is indicated by the phenol red pH indicator (yellow in acid and red in alkaline medium).
Brilliant green agar
