• This is a selective medium primarily for the isolation and differentiation of coliforms and non-lactose fermenting Gram –ve bacterial species from clinical, dairy, industrial and water samples. This media differs from the original MacConkey formulation with the addition of an extra 0.5% Sodium chloride, an altered Bile salt mix and the neutral red concentration was also modified. This enhanced the effect of inhibiting Gram +ve and other non-enteric bacterial species. This medium conforms to the requirements of the Harmonised USP/EP/JP.

  • This is a medium for determining the mutagenicity of a chemical reagent using the Ames Test. A histidine requiring strain (His -) of Salmonella typhimurium is inoculated into a mixture of salt agar, histidine solution and the test reagent, which is mixed and then used to overlay the media. Following incubation if the test reagent is mutagenic it will reverse the His- phenotype allowing growth to occur at a higher level than the control.

  • LB media formulations have been an industry standard for the cultivation of Escherichia coli as far back as the 1950s. These media have been widely used in molecular microbiology applications for the preparation of plasmid DNA and recombinant proteins. Vitamins and certain trace elements are provided by yeast extract. Sodium ions for transport and osmotic balance are provided by sodium chloride. Tryptone is used to provide essential amino acids to the growing bacteria.

  • LB media formulations have been an industry standard for the cultivation of Escherichia coli as far back as the 1950s.These media have been widely used in molecular microbiology applications for the preparation of plasmid DNA and recombinant proteins. This media has the addition of Kanamycin at 0.05gms/L for use with Kanamycin resistant strains and cells harbouring selection plasmids containing the Kanamycin resistance gene.Peptides and peptones are provided by tryptone. Vitamins and certain trace elements are provided by yeast extract. Sodium ions for transport and osmotic balance are provided by sodium chloride. Tryptone is used to provide essential amino acids to the growing bacteria, while the yeast extract is used to provide a plethora of organic compounds helpful for bacterial growth.

  • Letheen Agar (Modified) intended for use in the isolation of microorganisms from cosmetics. Total neutralisation of disinfectants is critical as disinfectant residues can result in a false negative result. Sodium Bisulfite, Lecithin and Polysorbate 80 (Tween 80) inactivate quaternary ammonium compounds , Tween 80 neutralises phenols, formalin, hexachlorophene and in combination with the Lecithin ethanol.
    Details
  • This is a general-purpose complex medium for cultivation and isolation of fastidious bacteria, yeasts and moulds. The formulation is based on the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP Medium II) and European Pharmacopoeia (EP Medium B). The medium can be incubated under aerobic or anaerobic conditions for sterility testing, air sampling and other areas of bacteriological investigation. This product is wrapped in barrier film to allow for use in Vaporised Hydrogen peroxide sterilisation systems. This particular product is triple wrapped and terminally sterilised by Gamma irradiation. Dose Range: 8.0 kGy - 15.0kGy
