Prior to testing samples, the efficiency of the two media was assessed, under controlled conditions using five standard strains mentioned above and was found to be 100% for both EMB agar and Hicrome E.
The growth medium's used during the entire process include Nutrient agar, Macconkey's agar, EMB agar and Mannitol salt agar

was isolated, by placing EMB agar plate in open in room for 20 minutes and then incubating it for 24 hours at 37degC.
radioresistens delayed bacterial identification, and it was not until the organism was later observed growing on EMB agar that an incorrect diagnosis was suspected.
