Abstract

Summary

On examining the oxidase reactions of 767 strains of staphylococci and micrococci, it was found that positive reactions were confined to Baird-Parker’s group. All yellow-pigmented subgroup 7 strains were oxidase positive, and this provides a rapid distinction between these and strains of .
