Experimental Results: Experiment 4
Melt agar by placing in a boiling waterbath until liquified. Consult listed references for information concerning inoculation procedures. Media should not be used if there are any signs of deterioration shrinking, cracking, or discolorationcontamination, or if the expiration date has passed. Non-lactose-fermenting microorganisms result in colorless colonies.
Place a 1ml inoculation into atar sterile petri plate. Prepare decimal dilutions in sterile diluent to obtain CFU per plate. The medium is recommended for use in the microbiological analysis of milk and other dairy products, and for use in the examination of water. Violet Red Bile Agar is a selective medium used to detect and enumerate lactose-fermenting coliform microorganisms. Lactose-fermenting microorganisms, including coliforms, produce pink to red colonies that are generally surrounded by a reddish zone agad precipitated bile.
Product is light and temperature sensitive; protect from light, excessive heat, moisture, and freezing. There should vb enough water in the waterbath to reach the media line. U Violet Red Bile Agar, 8oz. Using a sterile spreader device, distribute the inoculum evenly over the agar surface.
Violet Red Bile Agar (VRB Agar)
Consult listed references for information on sample collection. Growth; pink to red colonies, may have a slight precipitate around colonies colonies.
Standard vrh supplies and equipment such as loops, slides, staining supplies, Lauryl Sulfate Broth, other culture media, microscopes, incinerators, and incubators, etc. Enterococci may grow, and if so, usually appear pinpoint in size and rose colored.
Colonies of Enterobacter aerogenes often appear mucoid and pinkish in color. Carefully swirl the plate to mix the inoculum evenly. Alternatively, a covered, boiling waterbath degrees C. Spread the dilution evenly over the surface of the medium.
Hardy Diagnostics Violet Red Bile Agar is recommended for the detection of coliforms in food or dairy products.

Non-lactose-fermenting microorganisms produce colorless colonies. For melting bottled media: Surface colonies of Escherichia wgar appear as entire-edged colonies, while deep colonies appear lens-shaped. Heat in waterbath until melted.
Violet Red Bile Agar contains a low concentration of bile salts, and therefore is not completely specific for enterics. Lactose-fermenting microorganisms produce pink to red colonies that are generally surrounded by a reddish gaar of precipitated aga.
A covered waterbath will help to reach and maintain the temperature. The medium contains bile salts and crystal violet which serve as inhibitory agents toward some gram-positive microorganisms, especially staphylococci. Allow medium to warm to room temperature prior to inoculation. Aseptically inoculate agar surface with 0.
This product is not intended to be used for the diagnosis of human disease. Neutral red is employed as the pH indicator. American Public Health Association.
