Product: Streptococci Select Medium
Streptococci Select Medium – Cat No. PD133
Cat No. 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.
