Product Code TM 2203
McFeters, Cameron and LeChevallier modified Tergitol 7 Agar to improve its selective and differential properties for the recovery of stressed coliforms from chlorinated water. They have reported that the selective media such as M-Endo Agars used to isolate gram-negative bacteria recovered only 30% or less as compared to recovery between 71 & 100% of injured coliforms on Tergitol 7 Agar. In their study of water samples, including samples containing laboratory-stressed coliforms and surface and drinking water samples, M-Tergitol 7 Agar Base recovered 43% more coliforms than on M-Endo Agar and 36% more coliforms than by using M-Endo Agar with a resuscitation technique.
McFeters et al. have also reported recovery of 3.1 times more fecal coliform. Coliforms on M-Tergitol 7 Agar Base than the standard M-FC method and 1.7 times more than the two-layer enrichment temperature acclimation procedure. In another study of 102 drinking water samples 8 to 38 fold more yield of coliforms has been reported on M-Tergitol 7 Agar Base as compared to M-Endo Agar LES.
for selective isolation and identi?cation of injured coliforms from chlorinated water using membrane ?lter technique
