What does this throat culture slide indicate?
I would like some Help to identify bacteria growing on those pétri dish from my throat culture...
Hi I would recommend the following.
Thank you for choosing HCM.
I did review images of petridish you upload for throat culture. These are offwhite colonies with small pearl like colonies most likely represent streptococcus pyogenes bacteria. However for confirmation a gram stain on a slide prepared from the colony and a catalase test may be needed to confirm the diagnosis if needed.
I hope this helps sir.
Do let me know if you have any other concern sir.
