Product Code TM 2076

  • Description

    Contamination of foods with clostridia is largely derived from soil and is usually responsible for Clostridium perfringens food poisoning. A heat labile enterotoxin produced by sporulating cells induces the major symptoms of diarrhea in perfringens poisoning. Although the enterotoxin is not preformed in the foods, the foods in which conditions are favorable for sporulation may contain enterotoxin. Therefore, Clostridium are common food contaminants responsible for spoilage of canned foods, chill stored products etc.
    Fermentation Medium base for C.perfringens was formulated by Spray and is recommended by APHA for determination of fermentation reaction of C.perfringens. This medium helps in identification of C.perfringens from other Clostridium species.
