Price: USD 33.35 (CAD 43.36) Estimated Price
Part #: SB-MC100
Units: 10 slides per box

A more selective modification of MacConkey medium which is suitable for the detection and enumeration of coliform organisms and also for the detection and isolation of Salmonella and Shigella species occurring in pathological and food specimens. Due to the inclusion of a specially prepared fraction of bile salts in addition to crystal violet, the medium gives improved differentiation between coliforms and non-lactose fermenting organisms whilst Gram-positive cocci are completely inhibited. The slide is double sided and the other side contains Nutrient Agar with TTC (Triphenyltetrazolium Chloride).  A general purpose agar medium, containing two peptones, which will support the growth of a wide variety of organisms. It is suitable for the cultivation both of aerobes and anaerobes, the latter being grown either in deep cultures or by incubation under anaerobic conditions. A small quantity of the dye 2,3,5- triphenyltetrazolium (TTC) is added. Aerobic bacteria species grow on this medium and they can be detected by their ability to reduce TTC to a red colored formozan dye. Bacterial colonies appear as red dots on an otherwise clear colorless medium.
