Elaine"reverse camp test"

hey everyone,

W.R.T last post, I found a case study online about the last post on Acranobacterium hemolyticum

If you are free, please visit this website. It show clearly the symptoms and the stages of how a Medical Technologist will do if he/she suspect something.

To lizze, arcanobacterium hemolyticum is quite a difficult to culture out because it need a strictly anaerobe environmemt. If the colonies are too small, B-hemolytic ability is also difficult to observe. The med tech will normally re-isolate the microorganism on a new sheep blood plate because the arcanobacteria will not survive once it is out in the open-air.

This above pic(from the same website) show a clear reaction. It is quite difficult to get this. I don't even get to see a clear one like this.
