Product Literature/Brochure from Pro-Lab Diagnostics

Cytochromes are heme-containing proteins and are oxidative enzymes in the respiratory chain of bacteria which utilize free oxygen as a terminal electron acceptor. TestOxidase Reagent reacts with oxidized cytochrome C to form a coloured complex. Therefore, the test is positive for bacteria, which contain cytochrome C as part of their respiratory chain, and negative for bacteria, which do not contain cytochrome C.
