Fluvialis. Thiosulfate citrate bile salts sucrose (TCBS) medium is used for the isolation of vibrios when suspected. g. V. g. V. parahaemolyticus. Vibrio species are inhibited by the vibriostatic agent 0129, (2,4-diamino-6,7-diisopropylpteridine). 5% sodium desoxycholate. Epidemiologic clues suggesting a Vibrio infection include a recent history of raw or undercooked seafood consumption, especially shell fish (oysters), trauma-induced wounds contaminated with fresh or sea water, and foreign travel, particularly to endemic areas.

Presently, this microorganism has emerged as a significant nosocomial pathogen, producing a wide range of infectious complications in compromised hosts and bacteremia in intravenous drug abusers. Keratitis subsequent to penetrating eye injuries has also been recorded. While some isolates produce a bright red pigment (prodigiosin) especially at lower incubation temperatures, most isolates are of the non-pigmented variety. This species produces a number of proteases and an extracellular deoxyribonuclease.

Growth is accompanied by a ‘damp soil’ odor. Colonies are non-pigmented, smooth or rough, and growth also occurs on MacConkey agar without crystal violet. M. chelonei grows best at 28–30ºC. Because of the reduction in the chain length of their cell wall fatty acid composition, these species not only grow more rapidly, but stain weakly Gram-positive and hence can mimic Corynebacterium species (diphtheroids).
