Abstract : An improved IMViC test method is disclosed which is suitable for conducting multiple bacterial IMViC tests on solid media. The method comprises (1) obtaining a suitable culture of bacteria by growing the bacteria first in LST broth, then in EC broth and finally on EMB agar; (2) inoculating a test plate containing solid test media for the IMViC tests in separate compartments; (3) incubating said inoculated test plate; and (4) determining the results of the tests. The period of incubation for the IMViC tests has been reduced to 48 hours by this method. A test plate suitable for use with this method is also disclosed. (Author)
