Name : D.C.L.S. AGAR
  • Indended Use :

Description : D.S.L.S agar is a moderately selective culture medium for the isolation of Salmonella and Shigella from faecal specimens. The incorporation of two sugars permits the formation of red colonies by organisms that rapidly ferment either sucrose or lactose, or both; e.g., Proteus vulgaris, as well as typical coliforms. This permits the more accurate selection of members of the genera Shigella and Salmonella, which form Colourless or nearly colourless colonies on DCLS Agar
