Proteus is a gram-negative rod that can be observed with its characteristic "swarming" motility on blood agar (picture to the left). But if we want to study the colonies of this bacteria we need to inhibit the motility – and this we can do by cultivating it on CLED agar. Proteus is lactose-negative (so it will not change its color into yellow).
