Culture and morphological characteristics of Haemophilus influenzae and pneumococcus in bronchial infection



Culture and morphological characteristics of Haemophilus influenzae and pneumococcus in bronchial infection



Zhurnal Mikrobiologii Epidemiologii i Immunobiologii 1979(10): 108-112



In the cultures obtained by inoculating sputum samples faken from patients with bronchial infection into solid agar medium prepared on Hottinger's hydrolysate with fresh rabbit blood added Haemophilus influenzae produced colonies varying in their from (dome-shaped, conical, trapeziform), as well as in the morphology of the organisms. Pneumococci produced mainly flat colonies surrounded by the zone of alpha hemolysis. Along-side with isolated H. influenzae and pneumococcal colonies, symbiotic colonies could be observed. In these colonies pneumococci were diffused among H. influenzae.
