Product Code TMV 1110

  • Description

    This medium is prepared by using Veg hydrolysate in place of Casein enzymic hydrolysate which makes the medium free of BSE/TSE risks. Certain organisms breakdown the amino acid tryptophan with the help of enzymes that mediate the production of indole by hydrolytic activity. The indole produced can be detected by either Kovac?s or Ehrlich?s reagent. Indole combines with the aldehyde present in the above reagent to give red colour in the alcohol layer. The alcohol layer extracts and concentrates the red colour complex.
