Sarcina ventriculi is a gram-positive, anaerobic coccus that can grow in acidic environments, (1) with a carbohydrate fermentative metabolism as its sole energy source.
Sarcina ventriculi occurs mainly in adults (Table 2) but has been identified in an age range from 3 to 73 years.
Sarcina ventriculi is typically diagnosed with a hematoxylineosin stain and, if needed, with a Gram stain, which stains strongly positive.
Sarcina ventriculi is a gram-positive, nonmotile, chemoorganotrophic, anaerobic coccus with an exclusive carbohydrate fermentative metabolism.
Sarcina ventriculi was first isolated in pure culture from the stomach in 1911, using strict anaerobic techniques.
