Dilution fluid for samples in case of microbiological contamination
BUFFERED NaCl - PEPTONE SOLUTION (Veg) is recommended as the diluent in the preparation of samples to perform microbial limit test. It conforms to harmonized USP/EP/JP/BP requirements. It is also used to promote the recovery of damaged Salmonella spp. This fluid provides osmotic stability, a stable pH value and maintains the viability of microorganisms during preparation of samples. Veg peptone serves as source of carbon, nitrogen, vitamins and minerals.Sodium chloride maintains the osmotic condition. Phosphate buffers the medium. Polysorbates reduce surface tension and also inactivate phenolic compound, if present in the test sample.
