General description

The medium has the same growth promotion properties as the standard FTM (Fluid Thioglycollate Medium) and is compliant to the USP, EP and JP. The alternative formulation brings extra visual clarity versus the FTM which has a slight turbidity or haze. A high visual clarity medium is preferred by many users, when compared with the hazy or opalescent appearance of FTM. The sterilized double Tyvek® packaging allows to streamline the cleaning procedures, to minimize the risk of cross-contamination in laminar flow hoods and to secure an efficient decontamination of isolator chambers. The products are supplied as 100 mL bottles, screw cap with septum closure. The sterilization efficiency of the packaging including the space between the protective cap and the septum is verified on each batch with Biological Indicators.
