Bacillus circulans


Bacillus circulans is a flagellated, gram-positive, aerobic rod. Like others in its genus, it is a common contaminant of laboratory samples and is ubiquitous in the environment, especially in soil. A few rare cases of human infection have been documented, but the organism should be considered non-pathogenic. It is used heavily for the industrial generation of L-glutamic acid.
