In order to isolate Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae from mixed bacterial flora a selective and indicative medium was developed. The optimal concentrations of antibiotics were determined for selective chocolate agar (S-TSA) and selective blood agar (S-MBA) using a set of 25 strains of A. pleuropneumoniae. Following optimization of the media 96 isolates of A… CONTINUE READING
