streptococci like S.mutans grow on this medium.. may be other anaerobic pathogenic streptococci(animals) also grow in this medium . Listeria monocytogenes, a gram positive foodborne pathogen, also grows very well on this medium and may actually show better hemolysis zones than when grown on regular sheep blood agar.


Why does haemolysis occur?

The disruption of red blood cell and release of their haemoglobin. There are several types of haemolytic reactions when bacteria such as streptococci or staphylococcus grow on blood agar.


What are hemolysis?

The distruption of red blood cell and relese of their hemoglobin. There are several types of hemolytic reactions wehn bacgteria such as streptococci or staphylococcus grow on blood agar.

What type of medium is blood agar?

Blood agar is media rich in reb blood cells and the most commonly used type of media is horse blood media. It is useful for the isolation of bacteria such as Streptococci or organisms that would not readily grow on media that lack red blood cells. For the isolation of Streptococci it is also useful in observing alpha and beta haemolysis.
