Thioglycollate Medium w/o Indicator (Powder)

£348.48 500g

Thioglycollate Culture Medium is used for the cultivation of anaerobic, microaerophilic and aerobic microorganisms and for determining the presence of bacteria in normally sterile materials. Sulfhydryl compounds and low concentrations of agar, alone or in combination, are used to culture anaerobic organisms in a fluid broth under aerobic conditions. The use of sodium thioglycollate in these broth media is for the neutralization of mercurial preservatives. Sodium thioglycollate aIso lowers the oxidation-reduction potential of the media. Dextrose is added to enhance growth.
