| AC medium
|| General growth medium. Peptone, beef extract, yeast
extract, malt extract, dextrose, ascorbic acid, 0.1% agar, pH 7.2.
AC Broth does not have agar.
|| (2-[(2-amino-2-keto-ethyl)amino]ethanesulfonic acid.
Buffer for pH range 6.1-7.5
| Acid food
|| Generally, a food with pH naturally < 4.0, so that it is (relatively) safe
from bacterial spoilage
|| Lactobacillus acidophilus
|| N-[2-acetamido]-2-iminodiacetic acid; Buffer for pH
| Agar diffusion
|| (1) a procedure for detecting growth inhibitors (antibiotics)
by measuring the diameter of a zone of inhibition around a sample
of growth inhibitor on an agar plate. (2) a procedure for detecting
antigen-antibody reactions from samples diffusing toward each other
| Agar droplet (count)
|| Counting procedure in which the a dilution of sample
is placed (at increasing dilutions) into three tubes of melted agar.
Small droplets of the agar are placed on the bottom of a Petri dish,
incubated, and examined under magnification.
| Agar, Noble
|| Specially washed agar, by the method of Noble and Tonney.
|| Antihyaluronidase Titration Test
|| 2-amino-2-methyl-1-propanol; Buffer for pH range 9.0-10.5
acid; Buffer for pH range 8.3-9.7

| APT Agar
|| All-purpose agar with Tween 80
|| Autonomously replicating sequence (DNA)
|| Adenosine triphosphate.
| ATP assay
|| A procedure for detecting living cells by
using their ATP content to excite chemiluminescence, typically
with the luciferin/luciferase reaction.
| ATS medium
|| Used for mycobacteria. Egg yolk suspension, glycerol
extract of potatos, Malachite green; ATS: American Trudeau Society.
