Unformatted text preview: biochemical test that was performed on the MSA plates were catalase, nitrate reduction, test for the resistance or sensitively of the antibiotic Novobiocin, and the test that were performed on the MAC plate were oxidase, EMB plate, and citrate utilization. The data gave the result of the biochemical test reaction of the unknown such as of catalase or oxidase enzymes also image of the colonies grown on the plate and observation of the colonies under the microscope....
