Product Code TM 847

  • Description

    SIM Medium is used to differentiate enteric bacilli particularly Salmonella and Shigella on the basis of sulphide production, indole formation and motility. Jordan and Victorson reported that Salmonella Paratyphi A and Paratyphi B can be distinguished on the basis of H2S production using lead acetate. Sulkin and Willett used Triple Sugar Iron Agar with 1% agar for motility along with H2S production and carbohydrate fermentation. Sosa described a peptone medium with low agar for motility and indole determination.
