BM8500 –TB Diluent with beads

TB diluent with beads is a protective and isotonic diluent for the maximum recovery of mycobacteria. The low nutritional content of the diluent prevents organism multiplication in the sample for a minimum of one hour.

Bovine albumin in the diluent provides the carbon, nitrogen, and vitamin sources. Sodium chloride maintains the osmotic balance and the beads help to separate mycobacteria cell clumps.
