XLD AGAR

Product Code TM 492

  • Description

    XLD Agar has been recommended for the identification of Enterobacteriaceae and for the microbiological testing. XLD Agar was formulated by Taylor for the isolation and differentiation of enteric pathogens including Salmonella Typhi from other Salmonella species of foods, water and dairy products. XLD Agar exhibits increased selectivity and sensitivity as compared to other plating media e.g. SS Agar, EMB Agar and Bismuth Sulphite Agar. The media formulation does not allow the overgrowth of other organisms over Salmonella and Shigella. Samples suspected of containing enteric pathogens, along with other mixed flora, are initially enriched in Modified Semisolid RV Medium Base.
