  • Description

    MacConkey Agar is employed for the cultivation of enteric bacteria and in differentiation of lactose fermenters and non- fermenters. The medium contains bile salts to inhibit non-intestinal bacteria and lactose with neutral red indicator to distinguish the lactose-fermenting coliforms from the lactose-non-fermenting Salmonella and dysentery groups. MUG MacConkey Agar is based on the modification of MacConkey medium as per Trepeta and Edberg. It is used for the selective isolation and detection of lactose fermenting coliform organisms by a fluorogenic procedure. MUG MacConkey Agar helps to detect the presence of an enzyme ?-glucuronidase and thereby rapidly identifying Escherichia coli in mixed clinical specimens.
