Lysine Iron Agar is a differential medium for use in the identification of enteric bacilli.
- Dextrose is a source of fermentable carbohydrate
- Bromcresol purple is a pH indicator
- Lysine is the substrate for detecting enzymes
- Lysine decarboxylase production causes an alkaline or neutral reaction
Lysine Iron Agar is used for the differentiation of enteric organisms based on their ability to decarboxylate or deaminate lysine and to form hydrogen sulfide.
