The enzymaticdigest of casein (tryptone) with a high level of free amino acids is a nitrogensource. Yeast extract primarily supplies the B-complex vitamins. Glucose is anenergy source for the growth of bacteria, while agar is the solidifying agent.Plate Count Agar is also suitable for determining bacterial count from sterilerooms.

Application

Plate Count Agar is a non-selective medium for the plate count of microorganisms in water, food, milk, dairy products, beverages, animal feed, and other materials.

Preparation Note

Suspend 17.5 g in 1 litre of distilled water. Dissolve by bringing to the boil with frequent stirring, mix and distribute into final containers. Sterilize by autoclaving at 121°C for 15 minutes.
