Streptococcus pneumoniae is a common cause of otitis media, an infection of the ear canal. Due to increased resistance to antimicrobial agents, recovery of S.pneumoniae in culture and subsequent antimicrobial susceptibility testing has become essential. Blood Agar with Gentamicin allows recovery of isloated colonies and allows initiation of confirmatory procedures from the primary isolation plate.
