Oxyrase for Broth is a sterile enzyme formulation that uses the Oxyrase Enzyme System to produce anaerobic conditions in different bacteriological broth media. Oxyrase for Broth facilitates growth of anaerobes, such as for reviving lyophiles. Oxyrase for Broth is a ready-to-use product that renders broth anaerobic in 10-15 minutes, and continues to remove oxygen from the container headspace beyond that time.
Oxyrase® for broth has been used in reinforced clostridial media to provide an anaerobic environment for culturing Bifidobacterium adolescentis. It has also been used as a component in PMM/imaging media for oxygen-free microscopy experiments to remove oxygen.
