Preparation of simulated clinical material for bacteriological examination

, : Preparation of simulated clinical material for bacteriological examination. Journal of Applied Bacteriology 59(5): 421-436

The preparation of mixtures of bacteria to mimic the flora found in pathological material is described. Such mixtures are useful for teaching, for practical examinations, for quality control of media and methods and for use in quality assessment schemes. The design of suitable mixtures is discussed and the stabilities of mixtures in transport media and in freeze-dried preparations are compared. Transport media provide short term storage for periods of several weeks and, with various modifications, are moderately successful with some, but not all, quite delicate pathogens. Freeze-drying however, provides greater stability over periods of months, allows preservation of delicate pathogens and is the preferred method where specimen quality is important.

The feeding behaviour of E. nigromaculatus was studied. The feeding capacity of the larvae stages was determined under 20, 25, 30 and 35 degrees C; and 65% relative humidity. Larvae and adults pierced the cuticle of prey and sucked the contents. F...
