That is not part of our lab testing. I think my unknown is E. faecalis. I just need help finding out if it is postive for methyl red and VP also if it hydrolysis exoenzymes like statch, casein, fat, tryptophan,urea, kiligers iron, citrate and phenalalkine
I'm in the process of writing a bacteria matching program, which you might find helpful. (And it would also help me out to have someone give it a try.)
It only has about 50 bacteria in the database at the moment, but it does give E. faecalis as the best match based on the info you have given. You can drill down to comparisons between the information you enter and the bacteria that appear to be the closest matches (which is mostly info from Bergeys, but is at least all in one place).
