ID#:6609
Description:After 24 hours, this inoculated MacConkey agar culture plate cultivated colonial growth of Gram-negative, small rod-shaped and facultatively anaerobic Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria.
K. pneumoniae bacteria are commonly found in the human gastrointestinal tract, and are often the cause of hospital acquired, or nosocomial infections involving the urinary and pulmonary systems. This culture was used in a presentation involving the description of the steps taken when attempting to define a new taxonomic specie. The culturing of a new organism using differing agar media, photomicrographs, and chemical analyses are all used in the taxonomic investigative process.
