Product Code TMV 267
Pseudomonas Agar (Veg) is prepared by using Veg special peptone, which is free from BSE/TSE risks associated with animal based peptones. It is the modification of Pseudomonas Agar which is based on the formulation described by King et al for detecting pyocyanin, a water soluble pigment by Pseudomonas species. This medium enhances the elaboration of pyocyanin but inhibits the formation of fluorescein pigment. The pyocyanin pigment diffuses from the colonies of Pseudomonas into the agar and shows blue colouration. Some Pseudomonas strains produce small amounts of fluorescein resulting in a blue-green colouration.
