BLOOD AGAR BASE (INFUSION AGAR)

For selective isolation of fastidious pathogenic microorganisms after addition of blood. 

BLOOD  AGAR  BASE  (INFUSION  AGAR) is  used  for  isolation,  cultivation  of  fastidious  pathogenicmicroorganisms after addition of blood. This mediacan be used as general purpose mediaalso, withoutbloodaddition.Blood  agar  base  medium  can  also  be  used  for  primary  isolationof Haemophilusspecies, where  defibrinated  sheep  blood  is  used  to enrich  the  medium. Medium  contains  a  rich  nutrient  base,which  provides  optimal  growth  conditions  for  all  relevant  microorganisms.  Tryptone  and  Brain  Heartinfusion suppliesamino acids, minerals and other essential growth factors in the medium for the growthof microorganisms. Sodium chloride maintains the osmotic balance of the medium. Agar is a solidifyingagent.  On  addition  of  blood  the  pH  value  of  6.8 stabilizes  and  favours the  formation  of  clear  hemolysiszones.  Fresh,  defibrinated  sheep  blood  is  most  suitable  for  determent  hemolysis  forms. It gives  best results for Group A Streptococci. But sheep blood fails to supportgrowth of Haemophilus haemolyticusdueto deficiencyofpyridine nucleotides. However,addition ofhorse blood supports H. haemolyticusgrowth and haemolysis and the growing coloniesmimic Streptococcus pyogenes.

XLD AGAR(ISO 6579:2002)

For selective isolation and enumeration of Salmonella typhi and other Salmonella species. 

XLD  Agar  was  formulated  by  Taylor  for  the  isolation  and  differentiation  of  enteric  pathogens including Salmonella  Typhi from other  Salmonella species. XLD Agar has been recommended for the identification  of Enterobacteriaceae  and  for  the  microbiological  testing  of  foods,  water  and  dairy products. The media formulation does not allow the over growth of other organisms over Salmonella and Shigella.   

The  medium  contains  Yeast  extracts  as  source  of  vitamins  and  minerals.  Addition  of  Sodium deoxycholate acts as a selective agent which is inhibitory to Gram-positive bacteria. It suppresses the growth of other enteric pathogens and enhances the growth of only few enteric bacilli. The medium contains Xylose as a fermentable carbohydrate which is utilized by Salmonella species. The medium pH is changed due to fermentation of Xylose which is detected by indicator Phenol red, thus the colony colour turns red. The medium also contains Lactose and Sucrose as the source of fermentable sugar.  L-lysine  is  an  essential  amino  acid  source.  Lysine  is  added  to  differentiate Salmonella  Sp.  
Sodium  chloride  helps  maintaining  the  osmotic  balance  of  the  cells.  This  medium  also  allows differentiation of bacilli based on their ability to produce H2S; it contains Sodium thiosulphate and Ferric  ammonium  citrate  that  helps  visualizing  the  black  centered  colonies  on  production  of hydrogen sulphide in the medium. Agar is added as the solidifying agent.

CHROMOGENIC A. RAMBACH AGAR (as per ISO)

for detection and isolation of Salmonella species in clinical sample. Dehydrated powder, hygroscopic in nature, store, in a dry place in tightly- sealed containers below 25°C and protect from direct Sunlight.

CHROMOGENIC A. RAMBACH AGAR is used for detection and isolation of Salmonella species from clinical and food samples. The media is nutritionally rich and suitable for the growth of members of enterobacteriaceae. Propylene glycol supplemented in this media produces acid and in addition with the chromogenic mixture, helps in differentiation of non-typhi Salmonella spp. from other members of the enterobacteriaceae. Salmonella spp. produce typical red coloured colonies on this media. Coliform bacteria having β-galactosidase activity grow as blue coloured colonies. While, other gram negative bacteria develop colourless-light yellow colonies. Sodium deoxycholate inhibits the accompanying Gram positive microbes. Peptone and yeast extract serve as a source of nitrogen, carbon, vitamins and other essential micronutrients. Agar is a solidifying agent.

MANNITOL SALT AGAR BASE

MANNITOL SALT AGAR (MSA) is a selective medium prepared according to the recommendations of Chapman for the isolation of presumptive pathogenic staphylococci.The coagulase-positive species of Staphylococcus i.e. Staphylococcus aureus is well-documented as a human opportunistic pathogen. S. aureus is also isolated from recreational water like swimming pools, and are thus indicators of health risk. S. aureus is relatively resistant to the effect of disinfectant like chlorine and sodium chloride. Staphylococci have the unique ability of growing on a high salt containing media. Isolation of coagulase-positive staphylococci on Phenol Red Mannitol Agar supplemented with 7.5% NaCl was studied by Chapman. The resulting Mannitol Salt Agar Base is recommended for the isolation of coagulase positive staphylococci from cosmetics, milk, food and other specimens.

In addition, some of these bacteria, most notably H. influenzae, need growth factors such as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (factor V or NAD) and hemin (factor X), which are inside red blood cells; thus, a prerequisite to growth for these bacteria is the presence of red blood cell lysates. The heat also inactivates enzymes which could otherwise degrade NAD. 
                         
Medium contains Proteose peptone is a nitrogen source required for the growth of wide variety of organisms. Dextrose acts a carbon energy source. Disodium phosphate buffers the medium whereas sodium chloride maintains the osmotic equilibrium. Agar is the solidifying agent. Heated sheep blood is added to give the medium its “chocolate” appearance. This medium is prepared, stored and
dispensed under oxygen-free conditions to prevent the formation of oxidized products prior to use.
