Rapid detection and presumptive identification of Clostridium difficile by p-cresol production on a selective medium.

By K D Phillips and P A Rogers

Abstract

A modification of a selective medium for Clostridium difficile is described. The ability of Cl difficile to produce p-cresol from p-hydroxy phenyl acetic acid provides a means for the rapid, sensitive detection and presumptive identification of this species in faecal cultures
