Anaerobic Reducible Blood Agar is a solid media recommended for use in qualitative procedures for the primary isolation and cultivation of fastidious anaerobic bacteria.

  • Selective: Kanamycin and vancomycin antibiotics inhibit gram-positive organisms and facultative anaerobic bacteria. Neomycin facilitates the isolation of anaerobic organisms, such as Bacteroides and Clostridium and inhibits enteric gram-negative bacilli.
  • Easy-to-detect: Laked blood is added to enhance pigment formation by anaerobic bacteria.
  • Ready-to-use: Convenience of prepared media.

Anaerobic Reducible Blood Agar is a nutritious medium containing peptone, hemin, vitamin K and sheep blood, which supply anaerobic organisms with required growth factors. Colistin and nalidixic inhibit the growth of most gram-negative bacilli. Kanamycin and vancomycin inhibit gram-positive organisms and facultative anaerobic bacteria. Neomycin facilitates the isolation of anaerobic organisms, such as Bacteroides and Clostridium spp. and inhibits enteric gram-negative bacilli.  Laked blood is added to enhance pigment formation by anaerobic bacteria.
