Use of Mitis Salivarius Agar Base for Presumptive Identification of Streptococcus salivarius Collected from Clinical Samples

Siddeshwari Ajay Tiwari, Jyoti. Magare

S.salivarius are the normal commensals which inhabitats in oral mucosa Considering it’s deleterious virulence towards various destructive dental - periodontal diseases and belonging to same background we were fascinated to find the most efficient way to isolate and study this species. Oral swabs with a sample size of 20 were collected cultured on blood agar and MSA simultaneously. Blood agar showed mixed growth including various streptococcal species whereas MSA showed blue gum dropped colonies of S.salivarius. Hence, we terminated this study to a conclusion that MSA over blood agar is more efficient and less time consuming for isolation of salivarius species

Keywords: Ssalivarius, dental and periodontal diseases, blood agar, mitis salivarius agar MSA, blue gum dropped colonies
