OF Basal Medium, when supplemented with an appropriate carbohydrate, is used to determine the oxidative and fermentative metabolic activities of gram-negative bacilli.

  • Carbohydrate provides a source of energy
  • Dipotassium phosphate adds buffering capacity to the medium
  • Agar permits determination of motility

Changed in the covered agar are considered to be due to true fermentation, while changes in the open tubes are due to oxidative utilization of the carbohydrate present. If the carbohydrate is not utilized by either method, there is no acid production in either tube.
