Product Code TM 530

  • Description

    Mannitol Motility Test Medium is designed to differentiate bacteria on the basis of their motility and ability to ferment mannitol. The highly nutritious peptic digest of animal tissue supports luxuriant growth of fastidious bacteria like Staphylococci. Semisolid nature of the medium due to 0.3% agar helps to detect motility. Motile bacteria produce diffused growth throughout the medium while non-motile bacteria grow only along the line of inoculation. Fermentation of mannitol produces acidity in the medium. which detects acidity by exhibiting a visible colour change from red to yellow.
