A bottle of 500 g of dry medium.
Method of cooking:
Pour 64.25 g of dry medium into 900 ml of distilled water. The mixture is boiled to the full
dissolving ingredients. Bring the volume of the liquid to 1000 ml, check the pH and, if necessary,
adjust the value to 5.7 ± 0.2, using a 10% solution of NaOH or a 10% solution of HCl.
Sterilize in an autoclave at 121 ° C for 15 minutes.
Density of the finished medium:
The medium corresponding to the density of 1.2% agar gel is formed.
Color and transparency of the finished medium:
Ready medium has a light amber color, lightly opalestsuetsya if in cups Petri then
gel is formed.
Acidity of the medium:
At 25 ° C, an aqueous solution (6.71% w / v) pH 5.7 ± 0.2.
Principle and score of the result:
• Used for the selection and calculation of lactobacilli from meat and meat products.
The medium is selective in connection with changes in pH; lactobacilli carry low pH,
unlike other bacteria of lactic acid.
• Peptone, Glucose, Yeast Extract and Meat Extract Provide Necessary Nutrition
substances; Polisorbatul 80 provides the necessary essential fatty acids needed
for metabolism, and ammonium citrate and sodium acetate inhibits the development of streptococci and
• The presence of carbon dioxide stimulates the development of lactic acid bacteria.
• After inoculation of the medium with the test sample, they are placed in an incubator
for 24-48 hours at a temperature of 35-37 ° C.
