Detect coliform organisms in water, wastewater and foods with Lauryl Tryptose Broth. A positive fermentation reaction is indicated by turbidity in the broth and gas bubbles in the inverted Durhams tube.

  • Ease of Identification: Gas formation observed in the inverted Durhams Tube by coliform organisms.
  • Selective: Sodium lauryl sulfate is a selective agent that inhibits many organisms other than coliforms.

This medium is used for qualitative procedures. This medium contains casein peptones that provides nitrogen, carbon and sulfur essential for bacterial growth. Lactose is the carbohydrate source fermented by coliforms. Sodium lauryl sulfate is a selective agent that inhibits many organisms other than coliforms.
