AMIES TRANSPORT MEDIUM W/O. CHARCOAL

Product Code TM 456

  • Description

    Transport Medium is necessarily and should be a non-nutrient, semisolid, reductive medium which hampers the self- destructive enzymatic reactions within the cells and also inhibits toxic oxidation effects. Transport Medium was primarily developed by Moffett et al and Stuart et al for carrying gonococcal specimens. However, Cary and Blair observed the problem of overgrowth of contaminating organisms while carrying faecal specimens containing Shigellae. It was seen that the contaminants derive their energy from the glycerophosphate and therefore a buffer having inorganic salts was a better replacement for glycerophosphate.
