All of the microtubes contain ingredients that act as indicator for their reactions except for the TDA, IND and VP tubes which do not have indicator within the substrates. Most of the tubes will react by changing the colour due to pH changes and certain tubes changes colour with the help of the reagent in order to detect the metabolic product and reactions such as fermentation or oxidation for example for the tube containing inositol, sorbitol and rhamnose (SOR, INO, RHA) that changed to yellow colour if the result is Section of tubeObservationTests ONPGYellow coloured suspension formed+
