Organism mistaken for N.gonorrhoeae in gram stain of uterine cervix exudates: Moraxella osloensis
Sodium bicarbonate and sodium citrate are components of: JEMBEC system

Relasping fever in humans can be caused by Borrelia recurrentis
A suspension sof orgs suspected to be Shigella based on biochemical rxns didn't agglutinate with Shigella antisera subgroups A, B, C & D. The tech would conclude that: this particular Shigella possesses a capsular antigen that blocks agglutination in O antiserum and must first be destroyed by heating.
