Triphenyltetrazolium Chloride Soya Tryptone (TSAT) Agar Complete
Triphenyltetrazolium Chloride (TTC) has been added as an indicator to various media, and recommended by several workers as being helpful in the early recognition and identification of a variety of bacteria including Escherichia coli, Vibrio parahaemolyticus and enterococci. This particular formulation is based on a Tryptone Soya Agar with added Sucrose and is particularly useful when performing counts on food and food product samples. Many of the enterobacteriaceae and enterococci will reduce the TTC to a formazan which colours the colonies deep red making them easier to distinguish and identify. The presence of the Sucrose can also assist in the differentiation of Sucrose fermenting and non-fermenting strains.
