Availability Alert: We are experiencing higher than planned demand for key microbiology products, and to continue to serve as many customers as possible, we are focusing our operations on maximizing production output. It is more efficient to produce larger quantity pack sizes than smaller pack sizes, and for a short period we will therefore concentrate production of certain products on the 100/pack configuration rather than the corresponding 10/pack configuration. Concretely, we will make the following 10/pack products temporarily unavailable from Sept 28th 2020 until Oct 19th 2020:  Please search / order R02049 CTRN/100


Isolate and cultivate fastidious microorganisms with clearly visible hemolytic reactions (staphylococci and streptococci) and detect and enumerate coliform organisms such as E. coli, while at the same time isolating and detecting Salmonella and Shigella spp., using Thermo Scientific™ Blood Agar (TSA with 5% Sheep Blood) / MacConkey Agar.

Read more results from a single patient sample and produce more diagnostic details of pathogenic organisms while reducing storage capacity issues in the incubator with a bi-plate that includes two widely used microbiological media. One half of the plate contains TSA with 5% sheep blood to promote growth of fastidious organisms with clearly visible hemolysis forms for staphylococci and streptococci. MacConkey Agar on the other half of the plate is a selective medium for differentiating between coliforms and lactose and non-lactose fermenters.
