Product Description

Columbia Agar Base is a highly nutritive general purpose medium for the cultivation of fastidious organisms, especially when supplemented with plain or chocolated blood. It can also be used as a selective isolation medium by adding antimicrobial agents.

Application Notes

Columbia Agar Base is used extensively as a medium base for a variety of culture formulations in medical bacteriology. The haemolytic reactions in blood agar are genuinely defined. The majority of the common pathogenic bacteria, however, grow well without the addition of blood. Columbia Agar Base is used satisfactorily in other formulas supplemented by enrichments and /or various inhibitory agents.

Usage Statement
