Pathogenic bacteria; Isolating mechanisms; Serratia
Carbon sources and antimicrobial agents were analyzed for selective activity necessary to facilitate the isolation of the genus Serratia from aquatic samples. Suitable characteristics were combined in order to develop new media for the isolation of this genus. These new media were compared to selective media which had been previously recommended for the isolation of this bacterium. Differential media were used for both the identification of Serratia sp. from other enterobacteria and the differentiation of S. marcescens, S. liquifaciens, and S. rubidaea.
