This is a variation on sterile isotonic Saline which is suitable for use in preparation of food samples and/or as a rinse during examination of equipment etc. prior to culture. It can also be used as a general purpose diluent in many areas of the laboratory. The addition of glass beads will allow dense material to be broken down and aid the isolation of any bacteria that may be present in “clumps”.
This particular product is double wrapped and terminally sterilised by Ethylene oxide.
