One-day ocular safety study of HPMC-coated catalase tablets (Micrococcus) with indicator No. 8643X in albino rabbits
This question is not for the translation of the word (细球菌). Who can tell me why they put the microorganism belind the tablets? Does it mean the catalase is extracted from Micrococcus? Thank You!

It indicates the catalase is from Micrococcus lysodeikticus.
Explanation:
There are several catalases. “Micrococcus” indicates the catalase is from Micrococcus lysodeikticus.

See web 1:
“The 3D structures of several catalases have been reported, including Penicillium vitale (PVC) [2], bovine liver (BLC) [3], Micrococcus lysodeikticus (MLC) [4], Proteus mirabilis (PMC) [5] catalases, and Escherichia coli catalase hydroperoxidase II (HPII) [6].”

See web 2:
“Abstract: The crystal structure of the bacterial catalase from Micrococcus lysodeikticus has been refined…”
