Abstract

The addition of 1:100,000 crystal violet to the A.P.H.A. standard eosin-methylene blue agar inhibits the development of spreading colonies. The addition of this amount of dye to the standard agar does not make the identification or isolation of the colon bacilli more difficult. On the contrary, the colonies are even more typical than on the standard agar. B. coli and B. aerogenes can be fairly well distinguished from each other by colony appearance on this agar. B. coli predominates in feces, and B. aerogenes in soil.
