Cultivate, identify and differentiate Ureaplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasms hominis with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Selective A-8 Agar. This selective and differential medium utilises the ability of Ureaplasma urealyticum to hydrolyze urea with the production of ammonia and resultant alkalinity. Manganous sulphate is added as an indicator. The ammonia produced during urea hydrolysis results in precipitation of a metallic oxide reaction product within and on the surface of Ureaplasma colonies1.
