Tryptose Sulphite Cycloserine Agar (TSC) was originally formulated by Harmon et al for the enumeration of C. perfringens from food. TSC Agar has been documented as one of the most useful media for the quantitative recovery of C. perfringens while suppressing growth of other facultative anaerobes. Perfringens Agar Base is also recommended by APHA. Perfringens Agar Base can be made selective either by addition of D-cycloserine or Kanamycin and Polymyxin B. TSC Agar Base or SFP Agar Base is comparable in performance for isolation of C. perfringens.
