Culturing of bulk tank milk for the presence of Nocardia spp



Culturing of bulk tank milk for the presence of Nocardia spp



Canadian Veterinary Journal 31(6): 453-454



This short paper includes a method for the identification of Nocardia spp. in bulk tank milk samples. The method involves the use of blood agar plates (5% citrated ovine blood, Columbia agar base) containing 25 mg gentamicin per litre. (This antibiotic is added to reduce background bacteria, allowing Nocardia spp. to be detected more easily.
