    Infection with beta haemolytic streptococci is common, particularly in the pharynx. It is well known that the virulence factors of these organisms can produce a zone of haemolysis on a blood agar plate, but the ocurnace of frank haemorrhage has not been described in association with infections....

    Alkaline blood-agar, at a final pH between 8·8 and 9·0, can be used as a selective medium for staphylococci in cows' milk. Small numbers of staphylococci may be isolated from milk containing large numbers of micrococci by the use of this medium. Growth on alkaline blood-agar showed a close...

    A simple method of detecting lipase production by staphylococci is described. In an examination of 48 strains of staphylococci, lipase was produced independently of haemolysin. There was no correlation between lipase production and pathogenicity. Using blood agar plates it was shown that...
