Application

Selective medium for the isolation and differentiation of Salmonella typhi and other salmonellae from clinical material etc.
The prepared agar is turbid and greenish-yellow.

Preparation Note

Dissolve 47.3 g in litre distilled water and heat to boiling to dissolve the medium completely. DO NOT STERILIZE. This medium should be prepared, and the plates poured, 24h in advance of their intended use, since the freshly prepared medium is excessively toxic to Salmonellae. It must also be remembered the medium loses selectivity after 3-4 days, even when refrigerated.

Footnote

We offer two media types: the superior granulated GranuCult® and the cost-efficient powdered NutriSelect® culture media, depending on your needs.
The designations basic, plus, or prime are added to indicate the quality control level, from basic quality control to standard QC plus to prime for full regulatory compliance.
