Trouble Identifying an Unkown Bacteria.

Postby Grillote2 » Wed May 06, 2009 11:35 pm

I have been assigned to identify an unknown bacteria for my laboratory class. I have come to the conclusion that the bacteria is among the Alcaligenes family. I have done my research and everything. But I still do not know if the bacteria is the right one. I know my bacteria is among these:

a) Alcaligenes faecalis
b) Alcaligenes latus
c) Alcaligenes eutrophus
d) Alcaligenes xylosoxidans

My bacteria test results are these on API 20 E: 0204042
