Tryptose Phosphate Broth - 500g

  • $56.84 Model Number IB49151



  • Contains casein digest peptone, yeast extract, Potassium phosphate – monobasic, Potassium phosphate – dibasic
  • For use in cultivation of fastidious microorganisms including streptococci and meningococci

IBI’s Tryptose Phosphate Broth is a medium recommended for the cultivation of fastidious microorganisms. Tryptose phosphate broth is a buffered broth which can support the growth of fastidious streptococci and meningococci. The addition of 0.1% agar concentration can aid in the recovery of obligate anaerobes. Tryptose peptone and dextrose are a source of carbon, organic nitrogen, and energy. Sodium chloride contributes to osmotic equilibrium and disodium phosphate is a buffering agent.

To prepare, mix 50.8 g of the medium in 1 L of purified water until evenly dispersed. Add 4 ml of Glycerol to the mixture and evenly disperse. Heat with repeated stirring to dissolve completely. Then, distribute and autoclave at 121.0⁰C for 15 minutes.

Store product at room temperature, keep tightly sealed, and protect from moisture and light.
