What is the glucose test result of streptococcus faecalis?
It is positive for the metabolizing of glucose.
Asked in Bacteria
Test used for the identification of Staphylococcus aureus?
staph. aureus test positive for catalase test and coagulase test consecutively ...

Does staphylococcus aureus give positive nitrate test?
S. aureus is Nitrate Reduction test positive....
Asked in Biochemistry
Would glucose give a positive result with the Biuret test?
No because glucose does not consist of two or more peptide bonds
Asked in Chemistry, Biochemistry
Why is the Benedict test not exclusive to glucose?
The Benedict test will return a positive value for any reducing sugar. It will work with fructose, for example. Benedict solution oxidizes all the reducing sugars such as glucose, galactose and fructose. This implies that a positive result of Benedict's test can be any of the reducing sugars, not necessarily glucose. It will oxidize the carbonyl (which present in all type of sugar classes). So if we get a positive result in the Benedict test, it is not necessarily glucose; it could...

How do you tell the difference between S epidermidis and E faecalis?
Metabolic tests such as an oxidase test can be used to differentiate S epidermidis and E faecalis. Such a test can be conducted by adding H2O2 to the colony. The result for S aureus will be negative and the result for S epidermidis will be positive. ...
Asked in Science, Biochemistry
What indicates a positive result for the benedicts test?
A positive result is an orange red precipitate when heated. This indicates a reducing agent such as glucose. ...
Asked in Organic Chemistry
Why would hydrolyzed starch test positive after running a Benedict's test?
Starch is made up of repeating glucose units. Though it is a non reducing sugar, its hydrolysis gives out pure glucose, which is known as dextrose. And glucose, as we know, is a reducing sugar and hence would give a positive result in Benedict's test. ...
Asked in Gelatin
Is staphylococcus aureus positive for gelatin hydrolysis?
Yes it is. This test can be used to differentiate between S. aureus (which is positive) and S. epidermidis (which is negative). ...
Asked in Biochemistry
Does starch gives positive result for Benedict test?
yes starch give positive result for benedict test because it is composed of glucose molecule which is reducing sugar and change color on addition to benedict solution...
Is staphylococcus aureus indole test positive?
S.aureus is a positive gram. Indole test is a part the biochemistry test to determinate a bacteria negative gram. indole test used to determine S.aureus, the result is negative. That is improve which S.aureus haven't trytophanase enzym (please see indole test principle) bcb ...
Asked in Science
What is the reaction result for the methy red test for glucose on Staphylococcus epidermidis?
In my microbilogy lab, it was Glucose negative (meaning no gas or acid produced.) We used Phenol Red, however. ...
Where can I order a glucose test from?
A glucose test to test blood glucose levels can be ordered from a number of retailers. They are available to order from retailers such as Walmart, BabyCenter and Boots. ...
Asked in Pregnancy Tests
Why sucrose does not give a positive Benedict's test but hydrolyzed sucrose does give a positive beneditcts test?
Sucrose is formed from glucose and fructose.Sucrose is formed from glucose and fructose. Glucose and fructose gives positive test for benedict becuz both of them are reducing sugars whereas sucrose is not a reducing sugar so it gives negative test for benedict. On prolonged heating,sucrose will form glucose and fructose (reducing sugars)which ultimately gives a positive result . ...
Asked in Diabetes
How can you find out if a high glucose test was a result of diabetes or stress?
Ask your doctor to interpret the test results for you. Your doctor may also wish to order additional tests....
