How can you tell bacillus subtilis from bacillus cereus?

Bacillus subtillus will test positive when performing a VP and Citrate test. Also, bacillus cereus is much more motile. It isn't as dependable as the chemical tests, but the cereus colonies will appear wispy and more widespread on an agar plate than those of subtilis.

Differentiating between bacillus cereus and clostridium sporogenes?

The easiest way to distinguish one from the other is by performing an amylase test. Bacillus cereus will test positive by displaying a clear zone around the bacteria. Clostridium sporogenes will test negative because it does not produce the exoenzyme amylase. Another way is by performing a catalase test. Bacillus will test positive because it's an aerobe and Clostridium will test negative because it's anaerobic.

What are the biochemical tests to confirm bacillus species?

A test that you can do to confirm for example that your unknown is Bacillus subtilis from Bacillus megaterium is VP because B.subtilis is positive for VP and B.megaterium is negative for VP. There are plenty of test that you can do for example a gram stain, check if its aerobic, anaerobic, facultative anaerobic, check if its motile, is it a rod or cocci.. all those test help you find out more about your organism. There isn't only one test that you can do to confirm if your organism is from the Bacillus species you have to do multiple test because plenty of bacteria are gram positive, motile, rods, aerobic. Hope this helps:)The Starch Hydrolysis, it form a white clearing zone around the bacteria
