Figure 1

FIG. 1 Streak plate of Escherichia coli and Serratia marcescens on MacConkey agar. Both microorganisms grow on this selective media because they are gram-negative non-fastidious rods. Growth of E. coli, which ferments lactose, appears red/pink on the agar. Growth of S. marcescsens, which does not ferment lactose, appears colorless and translucent.
