Prepared Media Tubes
HI Broth w/BCP Base Control Thermo Scientific™
Determine the acid production from carbohydrate dehydration using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Heart Infusion Broth with Brom Cresol Purple. Huntoon’s medium containing fresh beef heart and peptone later came to be known as Heart Infusion Broth1. It demonstrated that without the addition of enrichment such as animal blood, the medium could be used to support the growth of nutritionally fastidious microorganisms.
Remel™ Cary-Blair Transport Medium Thermo Scientific™
Thermo Scientific™ Remel Cary-Blair Transport Medium is for the transport of clinical specimens, primarily stool and rectal swabs.
Remel™ Heart Infusion Broth w/BCP, 1% Arabinose (Brom Cresol Purple) Thermo Scientific™
Thermo Scientific™ Remel Heart Infusion Broth with BCP, 1% Arabinose (Brom Cresol Purple) facilitates determination of fermentation reactions of microorganisms, especially streptococci and enterococci.
Remel™ Selenite Broth w/Cystine Thermo Scientific™
Thermo Scientific™ Remel Selenite Broth w/Cystine is a selective enrichment medium for isolation of Salmonella.
Fastidious Broth Thermo Scientific™
Cultivate fastidious organisms present in small numbers from clinical specimens with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Fastidious Broth.
In 1994 Cartwright et al. first described the use of Fastidious Broth to enrich specimens that may contain small numbers of fastidious organisms, prior to culture on plated media1. Fastidious Broth support the growth of a variety of bacteria e.g., Corynebacterium jeikeium, Haemophilus influenzae, Neisseria gonorrhoea and Streptococcus pneumoniae. For many organisms this broth reduces the time of incubation and the volume of inoculum required for growth to be detectable.
Heart Infusion Broth w/BCP, 1% Inulin (Brom Cresol Purple), D - 5mL Thermo Scientific™
Remel™ Casamino Acid Solution (1%) Thermo Scientific™
Thermo Scientific™ Remel Casamino Acid Solution (1%) is for the short term transport of Bordetella spp.
Remel™ Sellers Agar Thermo Scientific™
Thermo Scientific™ Remel Sellers Agar provides differentiation of nonfermentative gram-negative bacilli based on fluorescence, oxidation of dextrose, production of nitrogen gas and arginine utilization.
Fraser Broth Thermo Scientific™
Selectively isolate and cultivate Listeria monocytogenes with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Fraser Broth.
L. monocytogenes is a common contaminant in raw milk, meat, vegetable, seafood and in food processing environment1,2. Low numbers of L. monocytogenes is improved by enrichment procedures using a broth medium. Fraser and Sperber developed a rapid screening procedure for Listeria species by modifying the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) secondary enrichment broth which improved to selectively isolate and presumptively identify based on esculin hydrolysis3,4.
Heart Infusion Broth w/BCP, 1% Lactose (Brom Cresol Purple), D - 5mL Thermo Scientific™
Kligler Iron Agar (Slant) Thermo Scientific™
Differentiate enteric gram-negative bacilli based on dextrose and lactose fermentation and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) production using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Kligler Iron Agar (KIA). In 1918, Klingler described a medium for detection of H2S and differentiation of Salmonella spp.1 Edwards and Ewing recommended KIA for determination of H2S production by enteric gram-negative bacilli2. KIA is also recommended by Gilardi for detection of H2S produced by some strains of Pseudomonas3.
Cetrimide Selective Agar Thermo Scientific™
Selectively isolate and presumptively identify Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other gram-negative, non-fermentative bacteria with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Cetrimide Selective Agar. The composition of Cetrimide Selective Agar promotes the selective growth of P. aeruginosa1,2 and enhances the Pseudomonas-specific pigment, pyocyanin3.
Cooked Meat Broth w/Glucose, Hemin and Vitamin K Thermo Scientific™
Cultivate anaerobic microorganisms using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Cooked Meat Medium with Glucose, Hemin and Vitamin K. Robertson introduced the use of beef heart extract in water to support the growth of anaerobic bacilli1 while Henry used cooked beef heart to study saccharolytic and proteolytic properties of anaerobes2. This medium is also referred to as chopped meat medium. Cooked meat broth promotes growth of bacteria even from minute inocula and maintains viability of the culture for a long time.
Purple Broth w/1% Xylose Thermo Scientific™
Decarboxylase Broth (Moeller) Lysine Thermo Scientific™
Differentiate gram-negative enteric bacilli based on the enzymatic ability of an organism to decarboxylate lysine using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Decarboxylase Broth (Moeller) Lysine. In 1955, Moeller developed the amino acid decarboxylase media to detect production of lysine and ornithine decarboxylase and arginine dihydrolase1. These media are used to differentiate bacterial groups within the Enterobacteriaceae2. Ewing, Davis, and Edwards reported Moeller’s formulation to be more reliable for differentiating Klebsiella and Enterobacter as compared to other media tested3.
