What type of medium was used
Nutrient gelatin agar deep
What type of inoculation is used
Stab Inoculation
Gelatin produces gelatinase which turns the gelatin into a
collection of peptides
What is the incubation time
18-48 hours
What is the incubation temperature
35-37 degrees celcius
If gelatinase is produced after the cooling period the specimen
remains liquified
If no gelatinase is produced after the cooling period the specimen
remains solid
Nutrient gelatin dissolves at
50 degrees C
Nutrient gelatin solidifies when cooled below
25 degrees C
Nutrient gelatin liquifies when heated to about
25 degrees C
Pseudomonas after cooling period was
liquified indicating gelatinase was produced
Proteus after cooling period was
liquified indicating gelatinase was produced
