Intended Use: 
For enrichment of Vibrio species. It is recommended by BIS committee under specification IS:5887 (Part V) 1976, reaffirmed 2005.       ALKALINE  PEPTONE  WATER is  a  pre-enrichment  medium  specially  standardised  for Vibrio species. Clinical samples like swabs and faeces in food and water samples can be added directly to the medium. Peptic  digest  of  animal  tissue  provides  nitrogenous,  carbonaceous,  and  other  important  nutrients. Addition of 10 grams of seafood to 90ml of Alkaline Peptone Water and incubate it for upto 18-20 hours at 37°C. If the incubation period would get prolonged, it causes the suppressed contaminating organisms to develop. The high concentration of sodium chloride promotes the growth of Vibrio choleraewhereas the relatively  high  pH  value  of  the  medium  suppresses  the  accompanying  microbial  flora  at  18-24  hours  at 35°C.
