Product Code TMP 014
On a solid medium, Sandys reported that swarming of Proteus species can be controlled by restricting the electrolytes. Formerly swarming of Proteus was controlled by adding alcohol, surface-active agent, sodium azide, boric acid etc. to the medium. Later on, Sandys medium was modified by Mackey and Sandys, by replacing mannitol with lactose and sucrose and elevating concentration of agar and bromothymol blue. This formulation was further modified by the same authors, called C.L.E.D. (Cystine-Lactose-Electrolyte-Deficient) by deleting the sucrose and including L-cystine for promoting the growth of cystine dependent dwarf colony coliforms. This medium is recommended for use in urinary bacteriology, promoting the growth of all urinary pathogens.
For isolation and di?erentiation of urinary pathogens on the basis of lactose fermentation.
