methyl red test

methyl red test
(for differentiation of Enterobacteriaceae) the organism is inoculated into a buffered glucose-peptone broth containing methyl red. In a positive reaction, the medium remains red after incubation owing to acid metabolic products. Most Enterobacteriaceae are positive, and Klebsiella and related genera are negative.
