Traditionally conventional media like Blood agar (BA) and MacConkey
agar (MAC) are being used in combination by most of the laboratories especially in the developing countries for long and Cystine lactose electrolyte-deficient (CLED) agar has been added later on but none of these media singly or in combination can support the growth and/or identification of possible uropathogens.
In the laboratory, the bone marrow specimen was inoculated onto 5% sheep blood agar, chocolate agar, and MacConkey
agar for isolation of routine bacteria, and Sabouraud dextrose with Brain Heart Infusion Agar (SABHI) for isolation of fungi.
(VTEC O26) Agar is selective for verocytotoxin producing Escherichia coli O26.
They were ground, serially diluted and plated in MacConkey
sorbitol agar supplemented with Cefixime Tellurite.
The analysis was restricted to bacteria that grow on Mannitol salt agar or MacConkey
A subculture was performed, and the organism did not grow on sheep blood agar and MacConkey
agar plates at 37[degrees]C in ambient air.
A total of 150 clinical specimens including urine (82), pus (39), tracheal aspirate (18) and sputum (11), all of which yielded pure growth of lactose fermenters within 24 h on MacConkey
agar were included in the study.
In brief, stool samples were cultured on Salmonella-Shigella (SS) agar, selenite broth for Salmonella and Shigella, on double plates of MacConkey
agar (one at 37 [degrees]C and the other at 25 [degrees]C) for Yersinia spp.
coli 0157:H7 infection in the clinical laboratory setting requires specific culture of stool specimens for the organism on modified MacConkey
medium containing sorbitol (4).

Other selective media such as MacConkey
agar Blood agar medium EMB medium Pseudomonas medium and Mannitole salt agar medium were used for culture and identification of specific bacteria.
