On April 12th, MVetMed Dimitri Valckenier and Dr. Sofie Piepers from MEX™ gave a practical training "Vet's Culture in Practice" for the cattle vets of a Belgian vet practice tailored to their needs. Supported by some easy tests and selective agars, the vets were able to distinguish:

  • Gram-positive from Gram-negative bacteria
  • Staphylococci from streptococci
  • Staphylococcus aureus from non-aureus staphylococci
  • Esculine-positive streptococci including Streptococcus uberis from esculine-negative streptococci including Streptococcus agalactiae and Streptococcus dysgalactiae.
