Highly selective culture media that inhibits competitive Gram negative flora, improved with growth factors that assure a luxuriant growth of anaerobic microorganisms.
Brucella Agar+5% Defibrinated Sheep Blood   
#PD011
Brucella Agar is used for the cultivation of Brucella spp. and other fastidious microorganisms in a laboratory setting. Brucella Agar is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans
Gradenella Agar        
#PD016
Selective, inhibitory to Gram positive and negative competitive flora, Gardnerella strains are identified by its’ β-haemolysis on human blood when incubated anaerobically.
Columbia Agar + 5% Def. Sheep Blood 
#PD134
For the cultivation of fastidious microorganisms such as Meningococci, Pneumococci and Streptococci, and for the determination of the haemolytic activity of the last group.
CNA Columbia Agar + 5% Def. Sheep Blood  
#PD093
For the isolation of more fastidious microorganisms to which the addition of special inhibitors (Colistin and Nalidixic Acid) make it highly selective for Gram positive-cocci, Staphylococci and Streptococci, particularly when Gram negative bacilli (e.g. Proteus) are present and tend to overgrow on conventional blood agar plates.
Helicobacter Pylori Selective Agar – Cat No. PD189
Selective isolation of H.pylori
Selective blood agar line
CNA Columbia Agar + 5% Def. Sheep Blood  
#PD093
For the isolation of more fastidious microorganisms to which the addition of special inhibitors (Colistin and Nalidixic Acid) make it highly selective for Gram positive-cocci, Staphylococci and Streptococci, particularly when Gram negative bacilli (e.g. Proteus) are present and tend to overgrow on conventional blood agar plates.
Hy-Campylobacter Medium  
#PD063
A highly selective medium with a mixture of six antibacterial agents that inhibits growth of competitive enterobacterial agents and allows growth of all Campylobacter strains in a micro-aerophilic environment.
Streptococci Select Medium – Cat No. PD133
#PD133
A selective enriched medium for the isolation of haemolytic Streptococcus from throat swabs and other clinical specimens. It favors growth of Beta haemolytic Streptococci ensuring luxuriant growth of the most fastidious microorganisms within 24 hours at 37oC (anaerobically) while the absolutely unique combination of microbial agents contained in the medium inhibits Gram negative and Gram positive bacteria except for Beta – haemolytic Streptococci which are not affected, and can be differentiated by their typical haemolytic reaction. A zone of growth inhibition around a bacitracin (0.04 units) disc allows the specific differentiation of group A Beta haemolytic Streptococci.
Select Strep. TSA + 5% Def. Sheep Blood + Aesculin
#PD095
Highly selective due to the addition of special inhibitors making it highly selective for Streptococci, particularly when Gram negative bacilli (e.g. Proteus) are present and tend to overgrow on conventional plates. Group D Streptococci are capable of hydrolyzing Aesculin to glucose and aglycone 6-7 dihydroxycumarin: The aglycone reacts with the iron salts in the medium giving them a black coloring. Group B Streptococci can be identified by the “camp effect” by making a single streak of the unknown bacteria perpendicularly to a strain of Staphylococcus aureus that is known to be crystal violet resistant and produces βeta-Lysin.      
Select Strep TSA +Def. sheep blood
#PD094
For the isolation of more fastidious microorganisms to which special inhibitors make it highly selective only for Streptococci, inhibiting almost all competitive flora, includingStaphylococci and Gram negative bacilli (e.g. Proteus and Pseudomonas) which tend to overgrow on conventional blood agar plates when present.
