acumedia<sup>®</sup> Bacillus Cereus Agar Base

acumedia® Bacillus Cereus Agar Base

• Intended Use: Bacillus Cereus Agar Base is used with Polymyxin B and Egg Yolk Emulsion for the isolation and presumptive
identification of Bacillus cereus
• Product Summary: Holbrook and Anderson described a highly selective and diagnostic medium (PEMBA) for the isolation and
determination of Bacillus cereus from food. The medium is formulated to detect small numbers of B. cereus in the presence of
large number of contaminants. This medium differentiates B. cereus from other bacteria based on resistance to polymyxin, lack
of mannitol fermentation, and presence of lecithinase. B. cereus can be found on vegetables, processed foods, and in nature. B.
cereus causes gastrointestinal illness if the organism is allowed to proliferate. Outbreaks of foodborne illness have been associated
with boiled and cooked rice, cooked meats, and cooked vegetables.
