  • Modified Letheen Broth intended for use in the isolation of microorganisms from cosmetics. Total neutralisation of disinfectants is critical as disinfectant residues can result in a false negative result. Sodium bi-sulphite, Lecithin and Polysorbate 80 (Tween 80) inactivate quaternary ammonium compounds. Tween 80 neutralises phenols, formalin, hexachlorophene and, in combination with the Lecithin, ethanol.

  • Maximum Recovery Diluent (Peptone/ Saline Diluent) An osmotically controlled solution for the preparations of suspensions of food samples and for use as a diluent in dilution techniques for bacterial enumeration. The presence of a low level peptone lessens the physiological shock normally experienced by bacterial cells when they are introduced to a diluent such as Ringers Solution. The level of peptone is such that multiplication of the organisms is not possible in the time in which the sample will be present in the diluent.

  • This is a general-purpose complex medium for cultivation and isolation of fastidious bacteria, yeasts and moulds. The formulation is based on the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP Medium II) and European Pharmacopoeia (EP Medium B). The medium can be incubated under aerobic or anaerobic conditions for sterility testing, air sampling and other areas of bacteriological investigation. This product is wrapped in barrier film to allow for use in Vaporised Hydrogen peroxide sterilisation systems. This particular product is triple wrapped and terminally sterilised by Gamma irradiation. Dose Range: 8.0 kGy - 15.0kGy

  • Glucose agar allows for the detection of glucose fermentation (with or without gas production) as an identification test for Enterobacteriaceae (ISO 21528) and B.cereus (ISO 7932). It is further enriched by the addition of Yeast Extract. Bromocresol Purple is also included and acts as an indicator of glucose fermentation.

  • Lactose Broth is frequently used as a pre-enrichment medium when testing foods, water samples and dairy products for Salmonella spp. In dried or processed foods, Salmonella species may be sublethally injured and present in low numbers. Pre-enrichment in a nonselective medium such as Lactose Broth allows for repair of cell damage, dilutes toxic or inhibitory substances, and provides a nutritional advantage to Salmonella spp. over other bacteria.

  • This is a general-purpose complex medium for the cultivation and isolation of aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms. The base medium, Tryptone Soya Agar (Soybean-Casein Digest agar), conforms to the Harmonized United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), European Pharmacopoeia (EP), and Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP). Histidine and Sodium Thiosulphate are added to inactivate surface disinfectants (Lecithin neutralises quaternary ammonium compounds, Tween 80 and Histidine neutralises phenols, formalin, hexachlorophene and, in combination with the Lecithin, ethanol and Sodium Thiosulphate inactivates mercurials, halogens and aldehydes). The medium can be incubated under aerobic or anaerobic conditions for sterility testing, air sampling and other areas of bacteriological investigation. This product is wrapped in barrier film to allow for use in Vaporised Hydrogen peroxide sterilisation systems. This particular product is triple wrapped and terminally sterilised by Gamma irradiation. Dose Range: 8.0 kGy - 15.0kGy
