Baird Parker Agar is a medium used for the selective isolation and presumptive identification of coagulase-positive staphylococci in foods, environmental, and clinical specimens. This medium meets specifications described in ISO 6888-1.
Typical colonies of S. aureus appear black or gray, shining and convex, surrounded by a zone of clearing of the medium. After incubation for at least 24 h, an opalescent ring immediately in contact with the colonies, may appear in this clear zone.
