Is there any way to find out if beta strept are b haemolytic other than
by actually plating on sheep blood agar? We find it a little difficult
to get sheep blood. So we manage with chocolate agar from other blood.
Just a thought that it would make diagnosis so much easier if there was
a easier way - like a biochemical test of some kind, or something.
Anyone wih any ideas on this, please get back to me.
