a bacterial species found in soil and water; it is frequently found in clinical specimens and is commonly associated with food spoilage (eggs, cured meats, fish, and milk).


a genus of gram-negative, strictly aerobic bacteria, some species of which are pathogenic for plants and vertebrates.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa
a common isolate from wounds, burns and urinary tract infections and from many other accumulations of pus in all species. Also commonly found in otitis externa, fleece rot in sheep, and some cases of bovine mastitis. Its presence may be indicated by a distinctive blue or green color of the pus or infected site.
Pseudomonas fluorescens
a common cause of food spoilage and a frequent isolate from wounds and other contaminated sites in animals.
