Growth; pink to red colonies, may have a slight precipitate around colonies colonies. Surface colonies of Escherichia coli appear as entire-edged colonies, while deep colonies appear lens-shaped. Lactose-fermenting microorganisms produce pink to red colonies that are generally surrounded by a reddish zone of precipitated bile.

Prepare decimal dilutions in sterile diluent to obtain CFU per plate. Lactose-fermenting microorganisms, including coliforms, produce pink to red colonies that are generally surrounded by a reddish zone of precipitated bile.

The medium contains bile salts and crystal violet which serve as inhibitory agents toward some gram-positive microorganisms, especially staphylococci. Aseptically inoculate agar surface with 0.


Non-lactose-fermenting microorganisms produce colorless colonies. Colonies of Enterobacter aerogenes often appear mucoid and pinkish in color. Alternatively, a covered, boiling waterbath degrees C. The medium is recommended for use in the microbiological analysis of milk and other dairy products, and for use in the examination of water. Place a 1ml inoculation into a sterile petri plate. This product is not intended to be used for the diagnosis of human disease.

Allow medium to warm to room temperature prior to inoculation. Enterococci may grow, and if so, usually appear pinpoint in size and rose colored.
