Product Code TM 050
Brucella Broth Base is formulated so as to support luxuriant growth of fastidious bacteria like Brucella species. Brucella is an intracellular parasite that causes epizootic abortions in animals and septicemic febrile illness or localized infections of bone, tissue or organ systems in humans. Brucella species are highly fastidious and therefore require a nutrient rich medium to be able to grow. Also, Brucella species are highly infective and so extreme care should be taken while handling. The basal medium (with addition of Campylobacter Supplements) can be also used for the isolation of Campylobacter.
For selective isolation of Brucella species, antibiotic mixtures are incorporated into the base. When non-selective medium is required, Brucella Broth Base may be employed with the addition of serum only (i.e. without antibiotics). It is suggested that half the tubes to be incubated in the normal atmosphere, and half in a 10% CO2 enriched atmosphere. Brucella species are highly infectious and so extreme care should be taken while handling.
