    I don't know about isolating from animal tissue, there are plenty of procedures for isolating from plants available online. You can buy kits to assay catalase activity though.

    Edit: In microbiology labs we just drop peroxide on the bacteria to see if they have catalase or not lol.

    No I'm working on my bachelor's degree in Microbiology and Immunology at McGill University, but I've taken the laboratory course in medical microbiology so I'm familiar with the tests for diagnosis and identification of pathogens.

    Ya I've taken two year long lab courses and and a ton of theory, I won't do clinical obviously though. The lab course for me was more designed to become familiar with the techniques for studying viruses, bacteria, and human immune cells. The diagnosis section I think they put in just to fill space lol. I have a parasitology lab next year too.

    I'm quite sure the rabbit is long dead by the time you get to it's liver .

    Maybe he needs some catalase and he's got a few extra rabbits lying about.
