Abstract : Two new differential media for th identification of Bacillus anthracis are described. Phenethyl alcohol and chloral hydrate are used as selected ingredients. These media should aid in the differentiation of B. anthracis from B. cereus and, if used in conjunction with other differential tests, they should also differentiate B. anthracis from the majority of other aerobic sporeforming bacilli. These media might also be useful in the classification of Bacillus species. (Author)
