  6. 7%aNaCl is a selective medium
    present an osmotir pressure that is too eextreme for many bacteria to survive
  7. Hemolysis
    break down of red blood cells - change of blood agar surrouding the colonies.
  8. 3 Hemolytic abilities
    • 1. Beta hemolysis - complete hymolysis. Cleared agar around the colonies.
    • 2. Alpha hemolysis - partial hemolysis. Agar around the colinies look greenish but not clear.
    • 3. Negative hemolysis - no Hemolysis has accoured.
  9. Lactose fermenting organisms
    • form dark or hot pink colonies
    • non- fermenting -clear or light colored colonies.
