Enrich and recover Vibrio species from food and water samples with Thermo Scientific™ Oxoid™ Alkaline Saline Peptone Water (ISO) (Dehydrated), while adhering to ISO/TS 21872-1&2:2007. This medium is selective by exploiting the ability of Vibrio species to tolerate alkaline conditions and high sodium chloride levels. The peptone content provides the conditions for growth and recovery of Vibrio species, supplying vitamins, minerals, and nitrogen in the form of amino acids.

Use Alkaline Saline Peptone Water (ISO) for selective recovery and enrichment for Vibrio species.
  • Creates strong alkaline and high sodium conditions to provide a selective environment for Vibrio species.
  • Adheres to the ISO/TS 21872-1&2 2007 standards.
  • Can be used as a non-selective enrichment broth for the cultivation of Aeromonas species.
Alkaline Saline Peptone Water (ISO) was first described by Shread, Donovan, and Lee1 to be used as a non-selective enrichment broth for the cultivation of Aeromonas species. Cruickshank reported that the raised pH of the medium could be used to effectively cultivate Vibrio species2.
