This bacteria was originally discovered in 1905 by an Austrian biologist named Schardinger and thought to be a bacillus.EN
P. macerans can be grown in the lab on a nurtient agar with a slightly acidic pH around 5. Optimal growth temperature is 30 °C. Also is able to grow in 5% NaCl making it a halotolerant bacteria.EN
P. macerans is usually found in soil and plant materials but has also been identified in blood cultures of infants with infection.EN
The bacterium is not normally pathogenic in humans but could cause allergies as a result of its histamine producing properties.EN
