Various methods for the detection of hemolysin production by Mycoplasma species were compared. Inoculation of blood-agar by the push-block method and by use of concentrated mycoplasma cell suspensions was compared with the agar-overlay technique. The preferred method was direct surface inoculation of concentrated suspensions onto the blood-agar. Among the conditions tested, refrigeration of 48-hr cultures gave the best results. A wide variety of mycoplasma species were tested for hemolytic… CONTINUE READING
