@mohsen: for characterization of a bacterium you have to all the tests as given above you have to start with morphological, physiological and biochemical characterizations. Identification of unknowns in this exercise, you will draw upon many of your new skills to identify unknown bacteria you semester and a few new techniques to characterize morphological, nutritional, physiological and biochemical characteristics of your unknowns. Bacteria are classified on the basis of many characteristics morphological and physiological features such as cell shape, motility, formation of spores and other distinguishable structures, and reaction to gram stain is a good start in identifying bacteria.
Colony morphology & identification of bacteria the term “colony morphology” refers to the visible characteristics of a colony colonies that differ in appearance are typically different bacterial strains, species, or genera. Taxonomy, classification, identification - assigning a name to an unknown by comparison to characteristics of known organism in a previously made classification system morphological (phenotaxonomic) physiological (phenotaxonomic) cultural biochemical (chemotaxonomic. Unknown bacteria determined to be alcaligenes faecalis because of its morphological, physiological and metabolic properties in a laboratory setting, it often becomes necessary to.
Correlations between morphological, molecular biological, and physiological characteristics in clinical and nonclinical isolates of acanthamoeba spp. Identification of unknown bacteria it is virtually impossible to identify bacteria based on physical characteristics alone this is due to the fact that there are only a few basic shapes and physical features commonly seen. Morphological characteristics such as colony morphology (color, shape, margin, elevation, and surface) and cell morphology (shape, gram reaction, and arrangement) of the selected bacterial strain were studies for identification.
The accurate and definitive identification of microorganisms, including bacteria, is one of the cornerstones forming the joint foundation of the fields of microbiology and infectious diseases identification is based upon the labeling of bacteria, parasites, and. Processes coupled to morphological, physiological, and biochemical characterization phenotypic identification is based on direct comparison of phenotypic characteristics of unknown bacteria with those of type cultures. Identification of unknown bacteria notes: which of the following would be most valuable to confirm the identification of microorganisms isolated during a food poisoning outbreak identification of microorganisms using microscopic, cultural, and physiological characteristics what three main approaches can be used by microbiologists to identify microorganisms. Identify the physiological characteristics of bacteria (with special reference to gram negative enteric rods) biochemical tests used in the identification of bacteria while no single test can identify this refered to as a test battery, which you will use to identify your unknown bacteria in this lab make sure you read and understand.
The morphological and physiological characteristics of 593 strains of nonfermentative, gram-negative bacteria are described a battery of 46 tests was used to identify and differentiate strains representing 8 genera and 31 species of named and group-designated bacteria. Morphological characteristics have been cultural characteristics mentioned above, the identification of the physiological capabilities of an for the identification of enteric bacteria are done these systems are so sensitive that a computer. Start studying identification of unknown bacteria learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools which of the following are examples of physiological (biochemical) characteristics that could be used in the bacterial identification process regardless of morphological and cultural characteristics.
