Media

Microbiology media is a growth medium for bacteria. There are six types of microbiology media: basal, enriched, selective, indicator, transport and storage. All allow for enrichment as well as the growth of bacteria with the exception of basal media which facilitates growth only.

See our range of media products below.

Products

BM0110

Prepared from Minced Meat granules overlaid with Brain Heart Infusion Broth this medium is suitable for recovery, isolation and storage of the most fastidious anaerobes as well as many aerobes.

BM0380

Sterile Isotonic Saline suitable for use in preparation of food samples and/or as a rinse during examination of equipment etc. prior to culture. It can also be used as a general purpose diluent in many areas of the laboratory.

BM0342

This is a selective medium for the isolation of yeasts and fungi and is particularly suitable for use in sterility testing. The low pH (5.6) of the medium is inhibitory to most bacteria and many diagnostic features such as spores and pigmentation are well developed on this medium.

The formulation of this medium conforms to the requirements of the Harmonized USP/EP/JP.

BM0322

This is a selective enrichment broth for the isolation of Salmonella spp. from pharmaceutical, food, dairy and environmental samples. Malachite Green and Magnesium Chloride are included in the formulation as selective agents due to their ability to inhibit most enteric organisms whilst allowing Salmonella spp. to multiply freely. Gram +ve bacteria and most other enteric bacteria, are typically susceptible to or inhibited by Malachite Green, the high osmotic pressure and/or the low pH of the medium.

It should be noted that S.typhi and S.choleraesuis are sensitive to Malachite Green and may therefore be inhibited. This medium conforms to the requirements of the Harmonised USP/EP/JP.

BM0310

The Medimachine II is designed to provide both gentle tissue dissociation and fine homogenization using appropriate disposable devices with different technical features according to the required procedure.

The instrument has an interactive touch-screen for selection of operation mode and for consulting the on board manual. This specific screen has been selected for use wearing lab gloves. The software offers multi-lingual settings and two modes: manual and automatic.

BM0093

Buffered Sodium Chloride Peptone Diluent is used for the microbial examination of pharmaceutical products, e.g. as a diluent for sample preparation or as a rinsing solution. This formulation complies with the Harmonized USP/EP/JP.

BM0092

Buffered Sodium Chloride Peptone Diluent is used for the microbial examination of pharmaceutical products, e.g. as a diluent for sample preparation or as a rinsing solution. This formulation complies with the Harmonized USP/EP/JP.

BM0064

E.E. Broth is recommended as an enrichment medium when examining food and feedstuffs for Enterobacteriaceae. It is a modification of Brilliant Green Bile Broth, with an improved buffering capacity to encourage early growth and prevent autosterilization.

E.E. Broth uses glucose instead of lactose to make the medium a test for all enterobacteria including non-lactose fermenting organisms. This formulation complies with the Harmonized USP/EP/JP.

BM0086

A pre-enrichment medium design to help sub-lethally damaged Salmonella spp. recover before introducing them into a selective medium. This nutrient medium is free from inhibitors and is well buffered to maintain the pH at 7.2 for the incubation period.

BM0082

A pre-enrichment medium designed to help sub-lethally damaged Salmonella spp. recover before introducing them into a selective medium. This non-selective, nutritious medium is free from inhibitors and is well buffered to maintain the pH at 7.0 for the incubation period according to ISO 6579 (2002).

BM0065

E.E. Broth is recommended as an enrichment medium when examining food and feedstuffs for Enterobacteriaceae. It is a modification of Brilliant Green Bile Broth, with an improved buffering capacity to encourage early growth and prevent autosterilization.

E.E. Broth uses glucose instead of lactose to make the medium a test for all enterobacteria including non lactose fermenting organism

BM0160

A medium designed for optimum growth of anaerobes, particularly the fastidious organisms, it is generally used as an enrichment broth and can be used as a Blood Culture Medium. The growth factors Vitamin K, Haemin and L-Cysteine are included in the medium to assist those anaerobes that require them.

L-Cysteine together with Sodium Thioglycollate reduces the ph of the medium and the Agar is present to reduce the absorption of Oxygen and convection currents. The redox indicator Resazurin is also present.

BM0100

A very nutritious general-purpose medium based on Columbia Agar Base enriched with 7% Horse Blood, suitable for the cultivation and maintenance of most organisms including many fastidious anaerobes of clinical significance.

BM0090

Columbia Agar is a nutritious general-purpose basal medium capable of supporting the growth of most micro-organisms, including many fastidious organisms that do not require blood. However when further enriched with Sterile Blood, which can be “chocolated” if required, the medium is generally used for the isolation of most clinically significant pathogens.

The medium can be made selective for various groups of organisms by the addition of a range of antimicrobial supplements. This formulation complies with the Harmonized USP/EP/JP.

BM0076

This is a very nutritious general-purpose medium suitable for the isolation of most organisms including many fastidious anaerobes. It is particularly recommended for streptococci and neisseria.

BM0070

A very nutritious isotonic general purpose medium with a low concentration of Glucose to stimulate early growth, Brain Heart Infusion Broth is suitable for the isolation of most micro-organisms including many fastidious organisms and, with enrichment as appropriate, is suitable as a base for blood culture medium. A phosphate buffer is incorporated to help neutralise any acids produced as a result of Glucose utilisation and thus maintain viability of the organisms.

NB: Organisms that produce large amounts of acid in the medium may overwhelm the buffering system and as a result ‘auto-sterilise’ the culture.

BM0040

Bile Aesculin Medium is generally used for the differentiation and presumptive identification of Group D streptococci (enterococci). Enterococci hydrolyse aesculin forming, amongst other products, aesculetin which in turn combines with Ferric ammonium citrate producing a dark brown or black complex.

The presence of Bile salts in the medium inhibits gram positive organisms other than enterococci. The medium can also be used for the presumptive identification of certain organisms within the Enterobacteriaceae group such as Klebsiella spp., Enterobacter spp., etc

BM0020

Alkaline Peptone Water is generally used as an enrichment medium in the isolation of Vibrio spp. from faeces. The high pH of the medium inhibits most enteric organisms for at least 24 hours. The medium is heavily inoculated with faeces and after not more than 8 hours incubation a loopful from the top of the medium is sub cultured onto TCBS Agar. This enrichment medium is also used for food and water testing.

KM0009

The Medimachine II is designed to provide both gentle tissue dissociation and fine homogenization using appropriate disposable devices with different technical features according to the required procedure.

The instrument has an interactive touch-screen for selection of operation mode and for consulting the on board manual. This specific screen has been selected for use wearing lab gloves. The software offers multi-lingual settings and two modes: manual and automatic.

KM0008

The Medimachine II is designed to provide both gentle tissue dissociation and fine homogenization using appropriate disposable devices with different technical features according to the required procedure.

The instrument has an interactive touch-screen for selection of operation mode and for consulting the on board manual. This specific screen has been selected for use wearing lab gloves. The software offers multi-lingual settings and two modes: manual and automatic.
