Thermostable Nuclease Test (TSN) Agar

This is a medium to detect Thermo-Stable-Nuclease from Staphylococcus aureus after heat inactivation of the organism. After boiling and centrifugation the supernatant is placed in a well in the plate and incubated for 4 hours. If present, the enzyme breaks down the DNA in the medium and produces a zone of clearing indicating a positive reaction.
