Staphylococci have the unique ability of growing on a high salt containing media. Isolation of coagulase-positive staphylococci on Phenol Red Mannitol Agar supplemented with 7.5%NaCl was studied by Chapman. The resulting Mannitol Salt Agar Base is recommended for the isolation of coagulase-positive staphylococci from cosmetics, milk, food and other specimens. It is also used in the performance of microbial limit tests for the selective isolation of Staphylococcus. The formulation is in accordance with the harmonization of USP/EP/BP/JP/IP.
