General description

Tryptic Soy Contact Agar + LTHThio contact ICR+ is designed for the determination of the total microbial aerobic and anaerobic count on dry, sanitized surfaces and personnel in Clean rooms and Isolators. It is a complex medium for cultivation and isolation of a wide range of bacteria, yeasts and molds. The formulation of the Soybean Casein-Digest medium contains combination of casein and soy peptones supplying organic nitrogen, particularly amino acids and longer-chained peptides. The medium is supplemented with neutralizers like. lecithin, Tween®, histidine, sodium thiosulfate and pyruvate to inactivate potential residues of disinfectants. In addition, ICRplus plates (plus or “+”) are supplied with a lockable lid for safe transport after sampling without the risk of losing the lid as well as for aerobic (“CLOSED”-position) and for anaerobic/ microaerophilic incubation in the “VENT” position.

Application

Tryptic Soy Agar (TSA, Soybean Casein Digest Agar) is a complex medium for cultivation and isolation of a wide range of bacteria, yeasts and molds. The media finds its application in environmental monitoring by determining the total microbial aerobic and anaerobic count on dry, sanitized surfaces and personnel in Isolators and Clean Rooms.
