We offer a wide range of specialized media formulated to achieve accurate
test results for a variety of contaminants. Each type of media is designed
to detect and identify its target with unparalleled precision. Perfect for
use with our
analytical monitors, all the
media provide reliable results with low incidences of false positives.
Microbiological analysis of:
Ready-to-use media considerably shortens
sample preparation time, reduces the risks of cross-contamination, and
keeps costs to a minimum.
Optimal media stability, sterility and reproducibility. All media
undergo detailed quality control checks in accordance with recognized
methods, guaranteeing uniform media preparation at all times. Each pack
contains a batch-specific quality certificate.
Wide range of products satisfies even special customer requirements.
Our liquid media are available in ampoules and/or bottles. Please
request us for current prices, other media or different packaging types/amounts.
|M-Green Yeast and Mold
||M-Green was developed
to improve efficiency of detection and enumeration of fungi in sugar
based drinks using the membrane filtration method. This medium has a
low pH, which inhibits bacterial growth. The addition of bromocresol
green, which diffuses into fungal colonies as an alkaline reaction,
allows them to be easily identified. Metabolic by-products from the
developing colonies diffuse into the surrounding medium, further
reducing the pH which aids in the inhibition of bacterial growth,
but also produces an acid reaction that causes residual bromocresol
green to change to yellow.

|MTGE Total Count Media
||All bacteria develop
on TGE media and produce a range of different coloured and sized

|M-Endo Coliform Broth
||Endo is a red coloured
media, which needs to be stored in the dark to prevent discoloration
of the media. Gram-positive bacteria are inhibited on this media by
the desoxycholate and lauryl sulfate. The addition of ethanol
increases the antibacterial nature of the formulation. Lactose
fermenting organisms form aldehydes, which react with Schiff's
reagent (basic fuchsin and sodium sulfite) to give red coloured zones
around the colonies. Coliform colonies are therefore red with a
characteristic metallic sheen.

|Orange Serum Media
||Organisms known to
grow in single strength and concentrated juices are lactic acid and
acetic acid bacteria and yeast. Lactobacilli, Leuconostoc and yeast
have all been identified as spoilage organisms by numerous authors.
Orange serum at pH 5.4 to 5.6 has been reported to yield maximum
counts of all types of spoilage organisms in mixed cultures, and in
single culture comparison tests.

||Allows the development of fecal coliforms at elevated temperatures (44.5°C).
||10 496 124
||Allows the determination of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa in water samples. 0.2µ
monitor (cat. # 10 497 511) must
be used to retain the organism on the surface of the membrane to culture it. Incubation temperature 35-37°C, incubation time 24-48 hours.

|HPC Broth with TTC
||HPC is used to
determine total count at incubation temperatures of 35°C. All
bacteria develop on HPC with indicator media and produce a red colour
as a result of the precipitation of formazan following the reduction
of 2,3,5- triphenyltetrazolium chloride (TTC) by bacteria.

||R2 broth can be used
to determine heterotrophic plate count at 35°C. When incubated at
lower temperatures (2530°C) for longer periods of 7296 hours it
can also be used to recover environmentally stressed organisms, or
those that are chlorine tolerant.
