Product Code TM 394
Urea Agar is used to detect urease production. Urea Agar described by Christensen detected urease activity by all rapidly urease-positive Proteus organisms and also by other members of Enterobacteriaceae that exhibited a delayed urease reaction. This was accomplished by:
a) adding glucose to the medium.
b) decreasing the peptone concentration and
c) decreasing the buffering system, as a less buffered medium detects even smaller amount of alkali.
