🔵we aren’t the same bro😂😂😂 •Chocolate agar (CHOC ) or chocolate blood agar (CBA ), is a nonselective, enriched growth medium used for isolation of pathogenic bacteria.It is a variant of the blood agar plate, containing red blood cells that have been lysed by slowly heating to 80°C. Chocolate agar is used for growing fastidious respiratory bacteria, such as Haemophilus influenzae and Neisseria meningitidis.In addition, some of these bacteria, most notably H. influenzae, need growth factors such as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (factor V or NAD ) and hemin (factor X ), which are inside red blood cells; thus, a prerequisite to growth for these bacteria is the presence of red blood cell lysates. The heat also inactivates enzymes which could otherwise degrade NAD. The agar is named for its color and contains no chocolate products. . . . 🔸 ✨If you want to hear more from us, Smash that Follow Button🤩👇🏻 🔸 @med_crate @med_crate @med_crate 🔸 🔹 #meme #medicalmemes #agar #chocolateagar #basics #generalanatomy #medicine #surgery #medical #medicalstudents #doctors #doctor #doctorlife #medstudent #nhs #nurse #nursing #hospital #hospitallife #patient #medlife #medschool 🔹

AGAR CHOCOLATE 🍫 Este es un tipo de agar sangre, siendo que aquí se le aplica calor para destruir los glóbulos rojos, esto es lo que le da el color marrón característico del chocolate. Se utiliza sobre todo para el aislamiento de Haemophilus influenzae y Neisseria meningitidis, para esto se le aplican unos factores de crecimiento (factores V y X ) necesarios para estos microorganismos.

Synovial fluid from a patient suffering from olecranon (elbow ) bursitis was inoculated into a blood culture bottle. 24h postinoculation the bottle was flagged positive and Gram-stained. Gram-positive cocci in clusters were clearly visible, thus raising the suspicion of some kind of a Staphylococcus. The bottle was inoculated onto Trypticase soy + 5% sheep blood agar, and chocolate agar. On the next day white coagulase-negative colonies were seen on the agar plates. The colonies were identified by MALDI-TOF as Staphylococcus lugdunensis. First isolated in 1988 in the city of Lyon, France (Lugdunum on Latin ), S. lugdunensis can easily be misidentified as a non-pathogenic CONS. It occurs as a commensal on human skin, but has been recorded as a cause of serious human infections, such as osteomyelitis, arthritis, bacteremia, skin and soft tissue infections, cardiovascular infections, peritonitis, central nervous infections, and UTIs. 1. S. lugdunensis colonies on chocolate agar, 24h postinoculation. 2. Gram-stained positive blood culture bottle of S. lugdunensis cocci (x1000 ). 3.

Chocolate agar Chocolate agar is the name given to SBA that has been boiled (70°C )to lyse the red blood cells. The color changes to a brown color hence the name. This agar is primarily used for fastidious bacteria like Heamophulis influenza, or Nisseria meningitidis and Nisseria gonorrhea. So why would we need the red cells lysed? The lysing of the RBCs causes the release of three critical items factors X,V and NAD. The heat also degrades several enzymes that normally interfere with NAD. This agar type is one that is very common when dealing with anaerobes. #chocolateagar #anaerobes

TSA (Trypticase Soy Agar ) and NA (Nutrient Agar ) are General Purpose Media that are not selective or differential, their purpose is simply to grow many types of bacteria cheaply. Trypticase soy agar or tryptone soya agar (TSA ) and Trypticase soy broth or tryptone soya broth (TSB ) with agar are growth media for the culturing of bacteria. #media #microbiology #microbiology #microbiologia #microbiologist #bacteriologia #macconkey #chocolateagar #lab #laboratory #microbes #bacteria #biotechnology #biotecnologia #biomedicina #biomedicine #pharmacy #farmacia #medicina #medicine #nurse #care #science #sciencelab #sciencerocks #hospital

🇬🇧 ➡️ Chocolate? No, Agar Chocolate Agar is a growth medium which derives its name from the fact that red blood cell (RBC ) lysis gives the medium a chocolate-brown color. In fact, during the preparation the red blood cells are lysed when added to molten agar base. It is used for the isolation of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Neisseria meningitidis, and Haemophilus spp. Some modifications can also be made for the growth of the specific organism giving rise to other media such as Thayer-Martin Media for the selective isolation of N. gonorrhoeae and N. meningitidis. - 🇮🇹 ➡️ Cioccolato? No, Agar L'agar cioccolato è un terreno di crescita che deriva il suo nome dal fatto che la lisi dei globuli rossi (RBC ) conferisce al mezzo un colore marrone-cioccolato. Infatti, durante la preparazione i globuli rossi vengono lisati quando aggiunti alla base di agar fuso. È utilizzato per l'isolamento di Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Neisseria meningitidis e Haemophilus spp. Alcune modifiche possono anche essere fatte per la crescita dell'organismo specifico dando origine ad altri terreni come Thayer-Martin Media per l'isolamento selettivo di N. gonorrhoeae e N. meningitidis. - ✒️VV 🔖 #darmed #medicine #science #microbiology #agar #chocolateagar

Neisseria gonorrhoeae, also known as gonococcus, is a species of Gram-negative diplococci bacteria which causes the sexually transmitted genitourinary infection (STD, or STI ) gonorrhea, as well as other forms of gonococcal disease including disseminated gonococcemia, septic arthritis, and gonococcal ophthalmia neonatorum. N. gonorrhoeae is an obligate aerobic, oxidase, and catalase positive bacterium, and it survives within neutrophils. As mentioned above N. gonorrhoeae can cause infection of the genitals, throat, and eyes. Untreated infection may spread to the rest of the body (disseminated gonorrhea infection ), especially to the joints (septic arthritis ). Untreated infection in women may cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID ) and possible infertility due to the resulting scarring. 1. N. gonorrhoeae colonies on chocolate agar, 48h postinoculation. 2. A positive N. gonorrhoeae smear. Notice the intra-neutrophilic Gram-negative diplococci, which are a common sight in male genital gonorrhea (Gram-stained x1000 ). 3. N. gonorrhoeae colonies on Thayer-Martin agar, 48h postinoculation. #microbiology #bacteriology #neisseria #neisseriagonorrhoeae #gonococcus #bacterium #gonorrhea #bacterialinfection #bacterialinfections #std #sti #septicarthritis #ophtalmianeonatorum #eyeinfection #sorethroat #pelvicinflammatorydisease #pid #obligateaerobes #diplococci #oxidasepositive #catalasepositive #chocolateagar #thayermartinagar #microscopy #gramstaining #gramnegativebacteria

📸1. Serratia marcescens on MacConkey Agar. 🧫 📸2. Serratia marcescens on Chocolate Agar. 🧫 By @mujicamario 👨‍🔬 —————————————————————————- 🦠Serratia marcescens is an opportunistic, gram negative, nosocomial pathogen which belongs to family, Enterobacteriaceae. It was originally considered to be an innocuous, non pathogenic, saprophytic water organism and it was often used as a biological marker because of its easily recognizable red colonies. Intensive care units are often involved in the epidemics of the colonization and the infection with Serratia marcescens. The important reservoirs in epidemics are the digestive tract, the respiratory tract, the urinary tracts and the perineum of neonates and the artificial nails of adults and health care workers. Medical equipment, lotions, antiseptics, medications blood products and sinks have also been described as the sources of epidemics. Serratia marcescens accounts for only 1-2% of the nosocomial infections which are mostly confined to the respiratory tract, the urinary tract, surgical wounds and soft tissues. Meningitis, which is caused by Serratia marcescens, has been reported from the paediatrics wards. In urinary tract infections, 30-35% of the patients are asymptomatic and most of the patients have a history of instrumentation. The mortality rate is very high in the nosocomial blood stream infections and in meningitis and endocarditis which are caused by the infection with Serratia. Some strains of Serratia are capable of producing a pigment which is known as prodigiosin, which ranges in colour from dark red to pink, depending on the age of the colonies. An important characteristic of Serratia marcescens is its ability to produce a beta lactamase which confers resistance to the broad spectrum, beta lactum antibiotics, which often complicates the therapy. The main risk factors for bacteraemia/sepsis which is caused by Serratia is hospitalization, placement of intravenous catheters, intraperitoneal catheters and urinary catheters and prior instrumentation of the respiratory tract. Serratia marcescens causes both opportunistic and nosocomial infections. —————————————————————————— #serratiamarcescens #serratia
