XLT4 AGAR BASE

Product Code TM 493

  • Description

    Salmonella is a genus of gram-negative enterobacteria commonly implicated in foodborne illness and is the causative agent of typhoid and paratyphoid fever. Although most Salmonella cannot be distinguished by biochemical characteristics, one serotype, namely S. Typhi produce only a trace amount of hydrogen sulphide and is less active biochemically than the more common serotypes. XLT4 Agar Base is formulated as described by Miller and Tate for isolating Salmonella from faecally contaminated farm samples, which contains other bacteria as well. XLT4 Agar Base enhances the recovery of Salmonella species other than Salmonella Typhi.
