What is simmons citrate agar?

Simmons citrate agar is a differential agar used to determine if a sample bacteria can utilize citrate as its only carbon source. The agar is initially a green color due to the bromo thymol blue pH indicator in it. If a bacteria uses the citrate, the by-products are ammonia and ammonium hydroxide both of which will alkalize the agar and increase the pH to the point of changing the indicator's color to blue, so the whole agar turns from green to blue.

Why is the citrate test carried out on an agar slope rather than a broth?

Background:Simmons' Citrate Agar is a defined, selective medium that tests for an organism's ability to use citrate as a sole carbon source and ammonium ions as the sole nitrogen source.The medium contains citrate, ammonium ions, and other inorganic ions needed for growth.It also contains bromothymol blue, a pH indicator. Bromothymol blue is green at pH below 6.9, and then turns blue at a pH of 7.6 or greater.SO:Sometimes, it is possible to detect growth on the citrate slant without the accompanying color change to blue. This is most likely due to insufficient incubation. Either a combination of blue color and growth or growth alone without the blue color should be scored as a positive for the citrate use test.
