Endo had first developed a culture medium for differentiation of lactose fermenters and lactose non-fermenters while inhibiting gram-positive bacteria. Inhibition of the later was achieved without the use of bile salts as was traditionally used. Endo was successful in inhibiting gram-positive bacteria on his medium by the incorporation of sodium sulphite and basic fuchsin. The resulting Endo Agar, also known as Fuchsin Sulphite and Infusion Agar, was used to isolate the typhoid bacilli. Many modifications of this media have been done over the years.
Endo Agar is recommended by APHA as an important medium in the microbiological examination of water and wastewater, dairy products and foods. Endo Agar is used to confirm the detection and enumeration of coliform bacteria following presumptive test of drinking water. It is also used for the detection and isolation of coliforms and fecal coliforms from milk, dairy products and food.
