Status of membrane-filter procedure for examination of water and milk forStaphylococcus aureus
- 27 Downloads
Baird-Parker (BP) agar was found to be more efficient forStaphylococcus aureus recovery from water and milk. The other media efficacy could be represented in that descending order: Mannitol Salt (MS)-Staphylococcus 110 (S 110) and Chapman Stone (CS) agars. (BP) was not recommended to be use in liquid form with absorbent pads, while (S-110) and (MS) tend to be superior to (CS).
