Biochemical Test of Bacteria

Biochemical reactions are very important in the identification of bacterial isolates and in the identification of different bacterial species. These tests depend on the presence of certain enzymes, such as catalase, oxidase, urease, gelatinase, etc., produced by the bacteria.

Different bacteria produce varying spectra of enzymes. For example, some enzymes are necessary for the bacterium’s individual metabolism, and some facilitate the bacterium’s ability to compete with other bacteria or establish an infection. Tests that measure single bacterial enzymes are simple, rapid, and generally easy to interpret. They can be performed on organisms already grown in culture and often provide presumptive identification.
