Media by Food & Beverage Application

Culture media and base ingredients are conveniently organized by food & beverage application for ease of locating the proper materials.

For simple and fast detection of bacteria, use media with a chromogenic substrate such as Salmon-GAL, X-Gal, and X-glucuronide. Certain enzymes, produced by some bacteria, cleave these substrates, resulting in the different coloration of specific bacteria colonies. This allows to clearly see the presence of the targeted microorganism, observed as a clearly visible color change. Most chromogenic media is intended for detection of pathogenic bacteria, including our media for Clostridum perfringens, the first of its kind.
