DEXTROSE AGAR

Product Code TM 334

  • Description

    Dextrose in culture media serves as a source of energy. A basal media with 0.5 – 1.0% dextrose, supplemented with defibrinated blood is recommended for the isolation of a wide variety of fastidious organisms. Dextrose Agar, recommended by APHA, contains 1.0% dextrose and therefore supports early and luxuriant growth of a variety of organisms including older cultures. The lag phase is comparatively reduced on this medium. But due to high concentrations of dextrose, the medium is not recommended for studying the haemolytic pattern of organism since dextrose interferes with the haemolytic reaction.
