Sample text

The results of such tests can be used to trace back the origin of the investigated isolates. In variable number tandem repeats (VNTRs), multi-locus variable analysis (MLVA), or single nucleotide repeat (SNR) analysis, the gene loci comprising repeated motifs bordered by conserved DNA regions are investigated. The combined lengths of the examined loci are likely to differ from strain to strain. The length of the repeated units varies from one base in the case of SNR to several dozens (macro-satellites) in B.

Anthracis from B. cereus, while phage testing with bacteriophage gamma is more specific. The feature of sensitivity of B. anthracis to gamma phage is still used for identification although exceptions were described in this case, too. In former times veterinary laboratories used a mouse inoculation test for confirmation. When all phenotypic characteristics were present and the phage test was positive, and finally the mouse died within one day after intraperitonal inoculation, and bacillus-like bacteria were seen on colored blood samples, the isolated bacterium was seen as a virulent strain of B.

As an alternative, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole-polymyxin-blood agar (TSPB agar) can be used, containing several antibiotics and resulting in a high selectivity against Gram-negative bacteria. 1 Spike-like projections at the colony edge from Bacillus anthracis (in addition no hemolysis on Columbia agar; Bundeswehr Institute of Microbiology, Munich, Germany). 2 ‘‘Sticky colony’’ phenomenon of B. anthracis after manipulation with a loop (J. Frey, Bern, Switzerland). Even if only some of these features are observed, the results should be considered as suspicious for B.
