LABORATORY DIAGNOSIS Current methodologies of anthrax diagnosis are performed focusing on several levels of speciﬁcity. Specimens of sputum, cerebrospinal ﬂuid, blood, or pustules for cutaneous anthrax may be collected and cultured on appropriate laboratory media. According to the CDC, genus-level presumptive identiﬁcation of Bacillus infection is performed through positive Gram staining, along with colony identiﬁcation. Species-level presumptive identiﬁcation requires motility tests, positive capsule visualization, ␥-phage lysis, hemolysis, wet mount, and malachite green staining (for spores).
