Product Code TMV 369
Deoxycholate Citrate Agar (Veg) is formulated by replacing animal peptone by vegetable peptone making it free of BSE/TSE risks. This medium is the modification of Deoxycholate Citrate Agar which is prepared as per the modified formula of Leifson. This medium is similar to the medium used for the isolation and maximum recovery of intestinal pathogens belonging to Salmonella and Shigella groups from foods. However, it is recommended to use less inhibitory medium when Shigellae have to be isolated. The selectivity of this medium permits the use of fairly heavy inocula without danger of overgrowth of the Shigella and Salmonella by other microflora.
for isolation of enteric pathogens especially Salmonella and Shigella species
