TRANSPORT CHARCOAL MEDIUM

Product Code TM 884

  • Description

    Muffett, Young and Stuart described a medium and method for transporting gonococcal specimens from the site of collection to the laboratory. Stuart, Toshach and Potsula elaborated upon the rationale of their transport method and presented the formulation in which they observed that coliform organisms were occasionally encountered in gonococcal specimens and that they were able to propagate in the transport medium and overgrow the Gonococci. Transport Medium with Charcoal is a modified medium based on the transport medium originally developed by Moffett et al and Stuart et al and is formulated for the transportation of clinical specimens containing moulds, yeasts and bacteria especially gonococci. Transport media is generally formulated to provide enrichment to maintain viability of the organisms.
