Development And Evaluation Of A Simple Chemically Defined Minimal Growth Medium For The Detection And Identification Of Neisseria Gonorrhoeae, Anna Moudy Apr 1981

Development And Evaluation Of A Simple Chemically Defined Minimal Growth Medium For The Detection And Identification Of Neisseria Gonorrhoeae, Anna Moudy

Life and Environmental Sciences Undergraduate Theses

A simple chemically defined medium was developed and shown to he useful in the detection of nutritional mutants of Neisseria gonorrhoeae. These nutritional mutants are most often problematic organisms found in gonococcal infections. The procedure used in preparation of the medium will enable researchers to easily produce a specific medium in a relatively short time. Variations of the medium can be achieved through simple alterations in the composition of one of three stock solutions used.


Studies On The Isolation Of Campylobacter Fetus Subspecies Jejuni From Environmental Samples, Dale Tischmak Apr 1981

Studies On The Isolation Of Campylobacter Fetus Subspecies Jejuni From Environmental Samples, Dale Tischmak

Life and Environmental Sciences Undergraduate Theses

Various methods and samples were investigated for isolation of Campylobacter fetus subspecies jejuni. With the growing concern over intestinal infection due to Campylobacter fetus subspecies jejuni, discovery of its epidemiology has become increasingly important. The most likely source of infection is from ingested liquids, and results showed filtration followed by an inverted filter incubation to be the best method tested for recovery of the organisms.


Evaluation Of The Inhibitory Effect Of Trimethoprin Lactate In The Modified Thayer-Martin Medium In Cultures Of Neisseria Gonorrhoeae, Laura Bennett Apr 1981

Evaluation Of The Inhibitory Effect Of Trimethoprin Lactate In The Modified Thayer-Martin Medium In Cultures Of Neisseria Gonorrhoeae, Laura Bennett

Life and Environmental Sciences Undergraduate Theses

The inhibitory effect of trimethoprin lactate in the Modified Thayer-Martin (MTM) media on the growth of Neisseria gonorrhoeae was studied. Clinical isolates were first screened for sensitivity to growth on the MTM media. Specific organisms appearing to have a sensitivity to the screening process were tested. The tests consisted of inoculating MTM, chocolate and MTM without trimethoprin lactate. The media were observed to detect differences in size and number of colony growth at twenty-four (24) and forty-eight (48) hours. The results show a definite decrease in growth of Neisseria gonorrhoeae on MTM in the first twenty-four hours. However by forty-eight ...
