Identify and maintain Neisseria gonorrhoeae and other bacteria using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ CTA Base Control (Cystine Trypticase Agar). This agar was first developed by Vera1. CTA Base Control media without carbohydrates can be used for the maintenance of stock cultures while CTA with...
Thermo Scientific™ Remel CTA with 1% Sucrose (Cystine Trypticase Agar) is used for determination of fermentation reactions by fastidious microorganisms, such as Neisseria, pneumococci, streptococci and non-spore forming anaerobes.
Cultivate and isolate fastidious and nonfastidious microorganisms using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Dehydrated Heart Infusion Agar. In the first media meat infusions were included for the cultivation of bacteria1.
Cultivate and isolate fastidious and nonfastidious microorganisms using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Heart Infusion Broth. In the first media meat infusions were included for the cultivation of bacteria1.
Differentiate and Identify Enterobacteriaceae spp. using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Gelatin Medium (Nutrient Gelatin). In their studies of gelatin liquefaction by gram-negative bacilli, Levine and Carpenter incorporated gelatin into the nutrient medium1.
Determine the indole production by members of the Enterobacteriaceae using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Indole Broth. Indole production is an important characteristic in the identification of many species of bacteria, specifically enteric gram-negative rods.
Differentiate enteric gram-negative bacilli (e.g., Morganella and Providencia1,2) on the basis of deamination of phenylalanine using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Phenylalanine Agar. In 1950, Henriksen reported Proteus species were able to convert phenylalanine to phenylpyruvic acid3.
