Five strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa that are routinely distinguished by diagnostic laboratories on the basis of their colony morphology on agar media were grown in different media to assess the effects of culture conditions on mucoid growth, which we define as the copious production of exopolysaccharide. On brain heart infusion agar, only two of these strains (mucoid and gelatinous) grew as slimy mucoid colonies. None of the five strains produced a mucoid pattern of growth in Mueller-Hinton… CONTINUE READING
