A new plating medium, shrimp blood agar, was developed by using the haemolymph of shrimp plus 200 ppm rose bengal as the substrate. The colorless shrimp haemocytes were dyed by rose bengal to red. On the present agar, the hemolytic bacteria strain may show a clear zone surrounding the bacterial colony. The result on hemolysis of 45 bacteria representing 12 genera isolated from aquaculture environments against shrimp blood agar and sheep blood agar was also evaluated. There are 11 strains with… CONTINUE READING
