IRON SULPHITE AGAR (VEG.)

Product Code TMV 296

  • Description

    This medium is prepared by using veg hydrolysate which is free from BSE/TSE risks associated with animal based peptones. Iron Sulphite Veg Agar is the modification of Iron Sulphite Agar which is based on formula of Cameron Sulphite Agar developed by the National Canners Association of America. 0.1% sulphite concentration in the original formula was reported by Beerens to be inhibitory to some strains of Clostridium sporogenes. This observation was later on confirmed by Mossel et al, who consequently showed that 0.05% sulphite concentration was not inhibitory to the organisms. For the detection of organisms causing sulphide spoilage either Deep-Shake Culture method or Attenborough and Scarr method may be followed:
