This medium was designed by Stuart for Gonococci. It is a chemically defined, non-nutrient medium suitable for transportation and preservation, without  allowing  significant  multiplication  of  microbes.  Calcium  chloride  salts  are  added  to  control  the permeability  of  the  bacterial  cell  wall  and  thus  prolong  their  survival.  Less  amount  of  Agar  is  added to make  medium  semi  solid.  Sodium  thioglycollate  suppresses  oxidative  changes  and  provides  a  reduced environment. Methylene blue acts as the redox indicator, the blue color indicates the presence of oxygen and it shows an adequate degree of anaerobiosis. Sterile swab allows the easy absorption of specimen.
