A semisolid urea-motility-indole medium designed for detection in Enterobacteriaceae of urease activity, motility, and indole production in one tube was prepared and evaluated. The formulation of the medium was similar to that of Christensen urea agar, but the agar concentration was 0.2%, and 1% tryptone was added. Results with 687 strains of… CONTINUE READING
