Catalase test



A catalase test is another tool to help identify unknown bacterial contaminants.  The catalase test will determine whether a microbe can produce the enzyme catalase (catalyzes the breakdown of hydrogen peroxide).  Mixing a smeared colony on a glass slide with hydrogen peroxide will indicate whether the catalase enzyme is present or not.  If bubbling occurs, then the test is positive.
