Sixty selected isolates showed a positive results for Api20E and CHROMagar as Klebsiella pneumoniae. primary screening by using minimal salt media appeared only six isolates have the ability to produce dark brown to black pigment in different levels.In vitro melanization assays showed K. pneumoniae HM produces brown colored pigment within 3 days on agar plate containing L-tyrosine. After optimization study, the results showed, the suitable condition for pathogenic Klebsiella pneumoniae HM to… CONTINUE READING
