I am trying to use Enterococcus faecalis as a challenge organism. I prepare
the inoculum as per the USP <51> by washing the growth in saline TS, the
inoculum preparation part seems to be going well. The problem I am having
is of slow growth and very small colonies on TSA membrane filtration plates.
I would appreciate any insights/suggestions.
