The evaluation of a mupirocin-based selective medium for the enumeration of bifidobacteria from probiotic animal feed



The evaluation of a mupirocin-based selective medium for the enumeration of bifidobacteria from probiotic animal feed



Journal of Microbiological Methods 57(1): 9-16



In this study, MRS medium supplemented with cysteine hydrochloride and mupirocin, termed Bifidobacterium selective medium (BSM) was found to be elective for bifidobacteria but inhibitory to a wide range of non-bifidobacteria strains commonly included in probiotic animal feed. Bacilli, lactobacilli, lactococci and streptococci failed to form colonies on BSM and enterococci, pediococci and propionibacteria formed colonies < 0.5 mm in diameter.
