MacCONKEY AGAR II W/O CV

Product Code TM 2225

  • Description

    MacCONKEY AGAR II (TM 2225) is the earliest selective and differential medium for cultivation of enteric microorganisms from a variety of clinical specimens. Subsequently MacConkey Agar and Broth have been recommended for use in microbiological examination of foodstuffs and for direct plating/inoculation of water samples for coliform counts. These media are also accepted by the Standard Methods for the Examination of Milk and Dairy Products and pharmaceutical preparations.
    MacCONKEY AGAR II (TM 2225) w/o CV is the selective and differential medium. This media is specially designed to improve the inhibition of swarming Proteus species and to achieve more definitive differentiation of lactose fermenters. Lactose non-fermenting strains, such as Shigella and Salmonella are colourless and transparent and typically do not alter appearance of the medium. Yersinia enterocolitica may appear as small, non-lactose fermenting colonies after incubation at room temperature.
