MASTITIS QUAD PLATES
Our Mastitis Quad Plates contain Heart Infusion Blood Agar in plate chamber 1, TKT/FC Agar in plate chamber 2, and MacConkey Agar in plate chamber 3 and Baird-Parker Agar in the fourth plate position. Blood Agar is a general, nonselective agar, allowing growth for most organisms. Differentiation is possible through recognition of bacterial growth characteristics and recognition of hemolysis on the Agar. We use Heart Infusion Agar in our plates along with 5% sheep blood as we have found it provides the best, most consistent results for common animal pathogens. Our TKT/FC Agar is for growth, separation and identification of streptococci organisms while inhibiting growth of other organisms. With the addition of our own Agar formulation and in-lab hemolysin, along with 5% sheep blood, further separation of specific strep bacteria is possible with the recognition of hemolysis on the Agar. MacConkey Agar is added for growth, separation and identification of gram negative bacteria (primarily coliforms). Baird-Parker Agar and KLMB Agar both promote growth and separation of staphylococci while inhibiting growth of other organisms. With the addition of our own KLMB hemolysin and 5% sheep blood, our KLMB Agar is also selective for staph types with hemolysis recognition. The photo to the left shows actual results of our plate inoculated with Staph aureus after 24 hours of incubation.
