    that falls, and the bacteria that get you sick may both be small, but when you allow them to accumulate, you can see characteristics of them. While snow is made from frozen water, with flakes differentiating in the structure of them, bacteria is like that. Certain bacteria families may have similar genomes, they do have slight differences that make up what they are. One way to tell the difference is to see if the bacteria is gram positive or gram negative. Gram-Positive bacteria contains peptidoglycan

    components in common. Both the snow that falls, and the bacteria that gets people sick may be small, but when allowed to accumulate, characteristics of them become visible. While snow is made from frozen water, with flakes differentiating in the structure of them, bacteria is like that, to a sense. Certain bacteria families may have similar genomes, they do have slight differences that make up what they are. Just like snow being made of frozen water, bacteria is made up of the same four genomes. They’re just

  • What Is The Positive And Negative Results Of A Gram Negative Bacteria?

    753 Words  | 4 Pages

    After conducting the Gram stain to ascertain that the unknown bacterium was a Gram negative bacilli, the species were inoculated in multiple biochemical tests. The tests that led to the conclusion of a Gram Negative bacteria were Oxidase, lactose fermentation, MR, VP, Indole, and H2S production. For the oxidase test, there were two categories one was for positive and negative results of the test. The positive result had three different types of bacteria while the negative result was the Enterobacteriaceae

    able to isolate both the gram-negative and gram-positive bacterium. In order to obtain the correct test results and to ensure the right gram mixed unknown is identified there had to be a series of eight biochemical tests performed on the gram-negative bacterium and five biochemical tests performed on the gram-positive bacterium. Introduction The sole purpose behind this conduction was having the ability to understand just how the gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria can be distinguished and

    major classes of bacteria that contain peptidoglycan, Gram-positive and Gram- negative. Gram positive bacteria will stain dark purple due to their thick peptidoglycan cell wall, while Gram negative will stain pink due to their thin peptidoglycan cell wall. Many Gram positive and negative bacteria are considered pathogens because they are capable of causing disease in humans. In order to treat properly individuals who are infected with a pathogenic Gram positive or Gram negative bacteria, the identity

    strain of bacteria a person has will aid in the proper medicine and dose given. Throughout the semester we have learned about different types of bacteria and certain test that can clearly identify them. The purpose of this lab report is to identify a Gram-positive or Gram-negative bacterium. Using all the knowledge of procedures and lab techniques identify the unknown and discuss all the tests you performed. Introduction Gram staining is a technique used to determine if the bacteria is Gram positive

    specimens. Each group completed a gram stain followed by a series of other test in order to identify the unknown bacteria. Each student conducted separate testing’s on one unknown in order to specifically identify the strain. Materials and Methods First and foremost the gram stain is conducted to differentiate gram positive bacteria from gram negative bacteria due to their cell structure. The thick layer of peptidoglycan in gram positive bacteria allows the crystal violet dye to retain

    _________ (50 Possible) Title: Identifying a Gram Positive and Gram Negative bacteria from a mixed broth Abstract: I inoculated a T-Soy agar with bacteria number 118, for this I used a streak isolation method. Next, in order to distinguish between Gram positive and Gram negative I used a streak isolation technique on a CNA plate, then performed the same exact procedure on a MacConkey plate. The results from the CNA plate showed the Gram Positive bacteria was an Alpha hemolyzer. Next, I used a P

    Bacteria can be divided into two types of species, gram positive bacteria and gram negative bacteria. To determine whether a certain type of bacteria was classified tests were conducted by Hans Christian Gram; who discovered the differences within the cell walls of the bacteria. Gram positive bacteria have a thick wall which consists of the protein peptidoglycan. This is opposite to gram negative bacteria which has a thin cell wall, which fold over each other (Wells, 2017). They retain a much thinner
