PP1162 – Violet Red Bile Glucose Agar (VRBGA) (USP)

Violet Red Bile Glucose Agar (VRGBA) (USP)
Violet Red Bile Glucose Agar is a selective medium for the isolation and enumeration of Enterobacteriaceae in food products. It is a modification of the original Violet Red Bile Agar (PP1150) with the Lactose being replaced with Glucose and conforms to the requirements of the Harmonised USP/EP/JP. As all Enterobacteriaceae ferment glucose it allows for a wider range of organisms to be detected. The medium is made selective by the inclusion of Bile Salts and Crystal Violet to inhibit gram-positive and other non-enteric organisms.
