avium was identified with ability to ferment mannitol, sorbose, arginine.
The Enterococcus strains were investigated via biochemical reaction tests including fermentation of sugars (e.g., arabinose, sorbitol, mannitol, sorbose, and sucrose) and arginine dihydrolase.
Also, fermentation test of salicin, trehalose, sorbose, ornithine decarboxylase, inositol, and xylose was performed [16].

Deionized water was the eluent (0.6 ml/min), and sorbose was the internal standard.
Species characterization was carried out by carbohydrate fermentation test using 1% sugars such as sucrose, sorbose, sorbitol, mannitol, glucose, pyruvate, inulin, ribose, melibiose, raffinose, arabinose, and arginine.
Isolates were replica plated in microtiter plates containing 180 [micro]l of phenol red broth base (BBL) supplemented with 1% sugar solutions (arabinose, mannitol, methyla-[alpha]-glucopyranoside (MGP), ribose, sorbose, or sorbitol) and incubated at 37[degrees]C for 24 h.
