Chocolate Agar

Chocolate Agar

Chocolate agar is essentially the same as blood agar except that during preparation the red blood cells are lysed when added to molten agar base. As a result, the cell lysis releases intracellular nutrients such as hemoglobin, hemin (“X” factor), and the coenzyme nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD or “V” factor) into the agar which is utilized by fastidious bacteria. Red …

X and V Factor Test for Haemophilus

X and V Factor Test for Haemophilus

Objective of X and V Factor Test To differentiate among Haemophilus species based on X and V factor required for growth. Principle of X and V Factor Test Haemophilus spp. have varying requirements for X and V growth factors. X factor indicates hemin and V factor indicates nicotinamide-adenine-dinucleotide, NAD. Consequently, the significant differences in growth factor requirements of Haemophilus spp. allows for their …
