General description

Terrific Broth is a highly-referenced microbial growth medium used for the cultivation of E. coli. This nutrient-rich microbial broth contains glycerol, peptides, amino acids, water-soluble vitamins, and carbohydrates.

Application

Terrific Broth has been used for non-selective cultivation of E. coli strains for cloning, high-yield DNA plasmid production, and high-yield production of recombinant proteins. citation It is also suitable for selective cultivation when appropriate antibiotics are added.

Features and Benefits

Terrific Broth liquid provides:
  • Filter-sterilized, ready-to-use format
  • Convenient package size
  • Standard formulation
