Casein Plates contain the major milk protein found in milk. Organisms were grown on Casien agar for 72 hours at 37o C to look for the presence of the exoenzyme proteases/caseases . (A): Pseudomonas aeruginosa, casein hydrolysis, as noted by a zone of clearing around the organism, as well as a ... Read More
DNase agar can be used to differentiate between potentially pathogenic S. aureus and other Staphlococcus by looking for the presense of the exoenzyeme DNase.
