General Prepared Media Plates
Remel™ Columbia Horse Blood Bi-Layer Medium Thermo Scientific™
Thermo Scientific™ Remel Columbia Horse Blood Bi-Layer Medium is used for isolation and identification of Listeria monocytogenes.
HBT Bilayer Medium Thermo Scientific™
Selectively isolate and presumptively identify Gardnerella vaginalis using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ HBT Bilayer Medium (Human Blood-Polysorbate 80). Media used by earlier investigators to recover G. vaginalis from clinical specimens include chocolate agar, peptone starch dextrose (PSD) agar, and Columbia colistin nalidixic acid agar1-3. Greenwood and Pickett developed V agar and demonstrated that G. vaginalis is a beta-hemolytic on agar containing human blood but not on sheep blood agar4,5.
Anaerobic Reducible Blood Agar Thermo Scientific™
Cultivate and isolate fastidious anaerobic bacteria with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Anaerobic Reducible Blood Agar. Adding reducing agents lowers the oxidation-reduction potential of the medium and improves the recovery of anaerobic organisms1
Remel™ Buffered CYE Differential Agar w/BTB, BCP, Polymyxin B, Anisomycin, Vancomycin Thermo Scientific™
Thermo Scientific™ Remel Buffered CYE Differential Agar BTB, BCP, Polymyxin B, Anisomycin, Vancomycin (BCYE wDyes PAV) is for isolation and differentiation of Legionella spp.
Brucella Agar with Leaked blood, Hemin and Vitamin K Thermo Scientific™
Isolate anaerobic micro-organisms with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Brucella Agar with Leaked blood, Hemin and Vitamin K. Prepared according to American Public Health Association1 the medium contains leaked blood and supports the growth of fastidious anaerobic bacteria. The medium also contains menadione (Vitamin K) and hemin for added enrichment to enhance the growth of anerobic bacteria. Brucella Agar with Leaked blood, Hemin and Vitamin K can also be used for antimicrobial susceptibility testing of anaerobes2,3
Remel™ A-7 Agar Thermo Scientific™
Thermo Scientific™ Remel A-7 Agar is used for isolation and differentiation of Ureaplasma and some species of Mycoplasma.
Remel™ HE Agar (Hektoen Enteric Agar) Thermo Scientific™
Remel™ Settling Plate Sterile R2A Thermo Scientific™
Thermo Scientific™ Remel Settling Plate R2A Sterile is used for performing heterotrophic plate count on treated potable water.
Mueller Hinton Agar Thermo Scientific™
Columbia CNA Agar with Sheep Blood Medium Thermo Scientific™
Non-supplemented Buffered CYE Agar Thermo Scientific™
Presumptively identify Legionella spp. by satellite phenomena with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Non-supplemented Buffered CYE Agar (Buffered charcoal yeast extract-BCYE). BCYE Agar was developed by adding ACES buffer and α-ketoglutarate, which stabilized the pH and improved the isolation of Legionella pneumophila from contaminated clinical and environmental specimens1,2. Cysteine is essential for the growth of Legionella spp. Isolates that grow on BCYE Agar containing L-cysteine but fail to grow on Non-supplemented BCYE Agar may be presumptively identified as Legionella spp3–4.
MacConkey Agar Medium Thermo Scientific™
Remel Slide Culture Plate, Potato Dextrose Agar Thermo Scientific™
Thermo Scientific™ Remel Slide Culture Plate, Potato Dextrose Agar is for morphological and microscopic identification of fungi.
Mycobiotic Agar (Mycocel Agar) with Chloramphenicol and Cycloheximide Thermo Scientific™
Isolate and cultivate pathogenic fungi, especially from clinical specimens which may be contaminated with bacteria and saprophytic fungi with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Mycobiotic Agar (Mycocel Agar) with Chloramphenicol and Cycloheximide. Leach, Ford and Whiffen described the use of cycloheximide as a selective agent for the inhibition of saprophytic fungi1. Researchers later found that the addition of both cycloheximide and chloramphenicol achieved more complete selectivity against growth of saprophytic fungi and bacteria2.
Blood Agar with Neomycin Thermo Scientific™
Selectively isolate Streptococcus pyogenes and Streptococcus pneumoniae from the upper respiratory tract with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Blood Agar with Neomycin (TSA with 5% Sheep blood). Blood Agar with sheep blood has shown to be the most accurate medium for the determination of streptococcal hemolytic activity. The 10 μg/ml neomycin in the medium is inhibitory to most Enterobacteriaceae, Neisseria, and Staphylococcus spp without being inhibitory to streptococci.
