Oxidase is an enzyme produced by some bacteria for electron transport and nitrate metabolism. Detection of this enzyme in freshly grown cultures is useful in the identification of some species. All Neisseria species are Oxidase positive and most fermenting Gram-negative rods are Oxidase negative with the exception of some Vibrios, Aeromonads, Pasteurella and Chromobacteriae. Most non-fermenting Gram-negative rods are Oxidase positive. The test involves smearing a portion of a freshly cultured colony onto a moistened strip and observing. The development of a blue/black colour within 30 seconds indicates a positive reaction.
