CHOLERA MEDIUM BASE

Product Code TM 411

  • Description

    Vibrio cholerae is the etiological agent of cholera in humans in which the disease is caused not by tissue invasion of microorganisms but through the production of toxins that interrupt normal intra-intestinal exchanges of water and electrolytes. Vibrios grow readily on most isolation media. Adding sodium chloride to the medium enhances growth of all species. Cholera Medium Base is a selective medium used for the isolation of Vibrio species from specimens contaminated with enteric bacteria. It is based on the formulation described by Felsenfeld and Watanabe for the isolation of V. cholerae and similar Vibrios from specimens contaminated with Enterobacteriaceae.
