  • Description

    Ethyl Violet Azide Broth was formulated according to the recommendations of Litsky, Malmann and Fifield, who investigated the action of a number of dyes and selective agents for the formulation of a confirmation medium for fecal streptococci. BIS has recommended E.V.A Broth for enumeration of Enterococci using MPN technique.
