Name : LACTOSE BROTH (SS) - SINGLE STRENGTH
  • Indended Use :

Description : Lactose broth may be used for detection of coliforms in water, milk, and food. It may also be used as a pre-enrichment medium for initiation of Salmonella growth in the testing of food that received dry heat treatment. Foods that have been treated by dry heat are expected to harbour a lower microbial population than raw foods and the use of a non inhibitory pr-enrichment broth is appropriate. Coliform detection is based on gas accumulation in Durham tubes as a result of lactose fermentation
