Which gram negative bacteria that is differential would
grown best on a blood agar plate?
Hello Natalie -
Well, it depends what disease or problem you are asking
for. A differential is specific to a given issue. For
instance, you might ask what gram (-) bacterial that grow
on blood agar would be a good differential for ear
infections. There are lots of gram negative bacteria that
grow very well on blood agar!!
Hope that helps you narrow down your question!!
