Q: 

What Type Of Culture Medium Would Increase The Size Of A bacterial Capsule?

A: Any culture low in iron would increase capsule size. These cultures are known as LIM cultures. Not all strains respond to all techniques, though.

The medium that is rich in carbon dioxide and low in iron would likely to increase the size of a bacterial capsule. This is not suitable for all species of bacteria. It varies with type of bacteria. The component that is more in the bacteria''s capsule if used as a culture medium, the size of the capsule would be larger. Of course this depends on the...

Q: 

What is a Blood Culture?

A: A blood culture is part of blood test that can help determine whether a person has bacteria or other infectious agents in his or her bloodstream. Blood cultures may be required when blood infection like septicemia is suspected, or when itís believed that infection exists in hard to scan areas. For instance if people have bacterial endocarditis, and bacterial matter is not showing up on x-rays or on echocardiograms, doctors might use a blood culture to determine its presence, since some bacteria will spread into the blood stream from the heart. For people having a blood culture, the procedure is fairly simple, but it does involve at least two blood draws, that are usually drawn from different areas of the body, for...
