  • 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.

  • A selective medium for the isolation of Staphylococcus aureus. The high level of Sodium Chloride inhibits most other organisms and as most Staphylococcus aureus ferment Mannitol the inclusion of Phenol Red indicator gives rise to yellow colonies. This formulation complies with the requirements of the Harmonised USP/EP/JP. NB: Some strains of coagulase negative staphylococci can give rise to false positive results on this medium It is necessary therefore to confirm the identity of Staphylococcus aureus by other confirmatory tests (e.g. Coagulase test, Latex test etc.)

  • Plate Count Agar (APHA) (Standard Methods Agar, Tryptone Glucose Yeast Agar) This medium is formulated to A.P.H.A. specification and intended for use in food, dairy and water bacteriology to perform Total Viable Counts. The agar is of high gel strength and is therefore suitable for use in pour plate techniques as well as surface inoculation.
    Details
  • This medium is recommended for the detection and enumeration of yeasts and moulds in food and dairy products. It can also be used for the cultivation of fungi although with the prolonged incubation necessary cultures may become overgrown by bacteria. The low pH (5.6) suppresses the growth of most bacteria and the low mineral content ensures good pigment production by fungi where appropriate.

  • 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.
    Details
  • R2A medium was developed to determine the bacterial count including heterotrophic bacteria in potable waters during treatment and distribution. This medium has a low nutritional content and therefore requires extended incubation times. It is recommended by the Environmental Agency, Methods for the Examination of Waters and Associated Materials, and Standard Methods for the Enumeration of Water and Wastewater.
    Details

  • 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.
    Details
  • 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.
