Lab 1 Page 28 Gameplan for the Isolation of Skin Bacteria (Micrococcus luteus and Staphylococcus epidermidis ). Micrococcus luteus is a Gram Positive, Non-Motile, Catalase Positive, Spherical Shaped Bacterium (Coccus) that does not grow in Clusters of more than two or three Bacteria. They are Obligate Aerobes. Colonies of Micrococcus luteus are a very bright Van Gogh Yellow. Most Micrococcus Species tha Staphylococcus epidermidis is a Gram Positive, Non-Motile, Catalase Positive, Sphere-Shaped Bacterium (Coccus) that tends to grow in Grape-like Clusters of Numbers of Bacteria. They are Facultative Aerobes. Colonies of Staphylococcus epidermidis are White-to-Cream in Color. Most of the Staphylococcus Species which have been studied have been isolated from the Human Skin. Most are harmless, but a few are dangerous -- very dangerous -- Pathogens and can cause serious Infections. You should treat Staphylococcus epidermidis as a Pathogen. Micrococcus luteus and Staphylococcus epidermidis and are both found on Human Skin, which allows us to do Direct Isolations. Samples are usually obtained from moist or oily Areas such as the Sides of the Nose or behind the Ears. Such a “Patient” Sample can then be directly streaked onto a Yeast Extract, Glucose, Calcium Carbonate Medium (YGC Medium). The Yeast Extract and Glucose serve as the Nutritional Base of YGC. The Calcium Carbonate, which is insoluble at the pH of the Medium, will dissolve in the Presence of Acids secreted by growing Staphylococcus epidermidis . The Result will be a Zone of Clearing around each smooth, round, White Staphylococcus epidermidis Colony on YGC Medium. Micrococcus luteus does not produce very much Acid while growing on YGC and so the smooth, round Yellow Colonies of Micrococcus luteus are not surrounded by a Zone of Clearing on YGC Medium. So we’re using two Traits -- Colony Color (the Result of Yellow Pigment production by Micrococcus luteus and White Pigment production by Staphylococcus epidermidis ) and a Zone of Clearing (the Result of Acid production by Staphylococcus epidermidis minimal Acid Production by Micrococcus luteus ) to Select for these two Skin Bacteria. Absolutely anything and everything can and will grown on a YGC Plate. Please Check your Plates for any Contaminants before you streak them. Some of these Contaminants can be quite Spectacular. But if they’re Fuzzy Fungi, please tape your Plate Shut and give it to Oscar ASAP.
