Baird-Parker medium was developed by Baird-Parker in 1962 for the isolation and enrichment of coagulase-positive staphylococci from food samples.
This medium is widely used for the detection of Staphylococcus aureus in various food products, dairy products, and other materials. Coagulase-positive staphylococci can also grow in cosmetics.
Therefore, these products are tested for the presence of coagulase-positive staphylococci.
Baird-Parker medium is a selective and differential medium used to detect and enumerate Staphylococcus aureus.
