I am currently working with microbial cultures that are cabable of
breaking down a certain chemical I work with. I know that I have a
mixed culture as plating out has revealed several different types of
colonies on nutrient agar. Some of the colonies appeared
creamish-brown!! with a mucoid surface. I think these could possibly
be a Pseudomonas as they have a strong smell ( akin to a baby's nappy
(diaper for all in the US) in my opinion). I may be totally wrong and
would really appreciate advice on this matter.
Could someone tell me the best ways to identify these bacteria (ie
isolation agar, API test, biochemical tests etc. All the colonies
have the same creamy (light brown on the edges ) colour but they are
all not the same shape.
All advice gratefully received.
