    3 & 4. Alpha-hemolysis on Blood Agar, viewed from top of plate (3) and underside (4).
    5. What gamma-hemolysis would look like viewed from underside of plate.
    1. Sterile Mannitol Salt Agar.
    2. MSAr plates with bacterial growth. Mannitol+ pathogen left, Mannitol- normal flora right.
    3. S. epi written in mannitol negative Staphylococcus epidermidis and growing on MSA. 
    4. Mannitol Salt Agar viewed from top. Yellow side of plate growing mannitol+ pathogen Staph aureus. Pink side of plate growing mannitol- normal flora Staph epidermidis
    5. Mannitol-negative Staph epi growing in punctiform colonies on MSA.

    Aseptic Technique for Pouring Agar into Petri Dishes (Click image to enlarge.)​
    1. Obtain sterile agar from warming oven. 
    2. Remove cap and hold it, opening pointed down to avoid contamination. 
    3. Flame neck of bottle.
    4. Pour 1/4" of agar into bottom of Petri plate. Only open lid as far as necessary.
    5. Flame neck of bottle, replace cap, and return bottle to warming oven.
    1. Blood agar. What type of hemolysis pattern?; 2 & 3. Specialized media #1 is MacConkey's; Specialized media #2 is Mannitol Salt
