Abstract - A medium has been developed for the isolation of mastitis staphylococci from samples of contaminated milk. This medium, which is derived from that of ZEBOVITZ, EVANS and NIVEN (1955), likewise includes potassium tellurite and glycine as selective products, but at different concentrations. Furthermore, it includes sheep cells and CAMP factor which enable the β-haemolysis of the staphylococci to he revealed. This medium allows the mastitis staphylococci to be isolated and identified from individual or can milk samples of even highly contaminated milk.
