This non-selective medium contains beef extracts combined with peptone, glucose, yeast extracts and sodium chloride to provide the necessary nitrogen compounds, carbon, vitamins and some trace ingredients necessary for the growth of bacteria.
The medium is ideally suited for sub-culture, particularly as a secondary growth medium for staphylococci which are to be tested for coagulase production. Nutrient Broth No.2 made up at double strength corresponds to the medium recommended by the British Standards Institution2 for use in the determination of the Rideal-Walker Coefficient of Disinfectants.
