R-2A Agar (Veg) is prepared by completely replacing animal based peptones with vegetable peptones which make the medium free of BSE/TSE risks. R2A Agar (Veg) is the modification of R2A Agar developed by Reasoner and Geldreich used for the heterotrophic plate count of water samples. Plate Count Agar is recommended for the bacterial examination of potable water as it gives an estimate of the aerobic and facultatively anaerobic bacteria which grow best at 35?C on a rich medium. The organisms that are under stress or chlorine tolerant bacteria, in treated water grow slowly or are unable to grow in these conditions. R2A Agar (Veg) like the conventional medium is a less nutritioned medium thereby enabling better recovery of these bacteria from treated water under different incubation conditions.
