This difficulty of freeing a culture from a clostridial contaminant applies also to separating one Clostridium species from another and explains why it takes so long to identify many of them. Since more than one species of this genus may occur in the same material, it is not surprising that the original descriptions of many socalled species of Clostridium were based on mixtures of two or more species. The separation of Clostridium species may entail a long series of platings and selection of colonies unless one of the mixture is a pathogen with invasive properties.
The choice of blood is often a matter of convenience and may depend on the animals kept by a laboratory. Horse blood from commercial sources is commonly used, but the blood of other species (man, cow, goat, rabbit, sheep) may be necessary for special purposes; they should be free from antimicrobial agents. Sheep Blood Agar can be used for detecting the different haemolysins of staphylococci and streptococci although bovine blood may give stronger reactions; haemolysis of sheep and human blood may be used also in the identification and biotyping of some species of Vibrio.
Physiological saline solidified with agar may be used to line tubes for the collection of rabbit blood. After the blood has clotted, the agar lining retracts with the clot, and the serum, expressed through the agar, is water-clear. Such serum is anticomplementary. Non-nutrient media are widely used for transport purposes. 2 Media constituents A fuller account of the derivation and properties of peptone, meat extract, yeast extract, gelatin, agar and bile salts is given in the Special Report of the Society for General Microbiology on constituents of bacteriological culture media (Report, 1956a); the design and formulation of media were reviewed by Bridson &Brecker(1970).
