Selective (against gram-positive bacteria) and differential culture medium (LF and NLF), commonly used for the isolation of enterics.
Blood agar is an enriched medium which supports growth of gram-positive cocci and differentiates them on the basis of hemolysis (α, β, or γ).
TSI test determines whether a gram-negative rod utilizes glucose, and lactose or sucrose fermentatively and forms hydrogen sulfide.
Catalase test is used to distinguish among Gram-positive cocci. Staphylococci are catalase-positive but Streptococci are catalase-negative.
Bacteria can be grown in an artificial medium in the laboratory. Growth medium can be broth, agar or biphasic. Medica can be categorized based on functions.

Antibody affinity is a quantitative measure of binding strength whereas antibody avidity incorporates the affinity of multiple antigen-binding sites.
Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria and archaea. They have a simple structure with genetic materials covered in a protein coat.
Total laboratory automation (TLA) is a system that automates culture-based testing in the clinical microbiology laboratory.
Gel Filtration Chromatography separates the samples based on the molecular size and shape of specimen present in them.
