Application

Xylose Disks are used to differentiate bacteria on the basis of carbohydrate fermentation abilities.

Principle

Xylose disks are used based on the principle that microorganisms can only ferment certain carbohydrates. The ability to cleave various carbohydrates depends on the type of enzymes they possess. This can be detected either by gas production (CO2) in liquid media or change in color of the pH indicator because of the acid production.
