Description

Hemolytic reaction on the Blood agar plate was observed by lifting Petri to the light source, the results of hemolytic activity can be seen in table 1. There are 3 types of hemolysis namely beta hemolysis (β), alpha hemolysis (α), and gamma hemolysis (γ). Beta hemolysis (β) or commonly called total hemolysis is defined as the lysis of all red blood cells. A clear zone, close to the color of the transparency of the base media and surround the colony. Many species of bacteria produce toxins or poisons that can destroy red blood cells. Some species display various levels of beta hemolysis.
