Enterobacteria Enrichment Broth - Mossel (USP/EP/JP)

Product Code: HP003

A medium recommended by the Harmonised European Pharmacopoeia for the selective enrichment of bile-tolerant Gram-negative bacteria from non-sterile pharmaceutical samples.

Conforms to USP/EP/JP performance specification. Gelatin peptone provides nitrogen, while glucose is a source of fermentable carbohydrate, facilitating efficient growth of most Enterobacteria, including non-lactose fermenting organisms, such as Salmonella species. Potassium dihydrogen phosphate and disodium hydrogen phosphate act as a buffer system to encourage early growth and prevent auto sterilisation. Brilliant green and ox bile are selective agents, inhibiting non-target competitive organisms. According to the Harmonised European Pharmacopoeia, Enterobacteria Enrichment (EE) Broth-Mossel is used as a selective enrichment broth, with subculture performed onto Violet Red Bile Glucose Agar (VRBGA).
