SKU: sku-1883
Intended Use: 
Mueller Hinton Agar for cultivation of Neisseria & for determination of susceptibility of microorganisms to antibiotics.
Product Code: 
TM 339
Principles: 
MUELLER HINTON AGAR is used for cultivation of Neisseria & for determination of susceptibility of microorganisms to antibiotics. It is formulated by Mueller and Hinton for the primary isolation of Neisseria species. Bauer and Kirby recommended this medium for performing antibiotic susceptibility tests using a single disc of high concentration. Mueller Hinton Agar has become the standard medium for antimicrobial susceptibility testing and its performance is in accordance to Clinical and Laboratory Standard Institute (CLSI), formerly NCCLS and complies with requirements of the WHO, FDA and EUCAST.

Product Description: 

Originally developed by Mueller and Hinton only for the isolation of pathogenic Neisseria, Mueller Hinton agar medium is now considered as a standard culture medium for routine susceptibility testing of non-fastidious microorganisms to antibiotics. Bauer and Kirby have recommended this medium for performing antibiotic susceptibility tests using a single disc of high concentration. It is also recommended by FDA, WHO and CLSI for testing the most commonly encountered aerobic and facultative anaerobic bacteria in food and clinical material. The medium displays good batch-to-batch reproducibility, is low in sulfonamide, trimethoprim and tetracycline inhibitors and allows satisfactory growth of most of the non-fastidious pathogens. This medium can also be used as Mueller Hinton blood agar medium that is basically MHA supplemented with blood for the antimicrobial disk diffusion testing of Streptococcus spp., including Streptococcus pnuemoniae.
