Supplement VX is recommended as an enrichment for the cultivation of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Haemophilus influenzae and other fastidious organisms. Supplement VX is a sterile lyophilized concentrate of essential growth factors for supplementing media for culturing microorganisms with exacting growth requirements. It is used for the preparation of chocolate agar from GC Agar Base and hemoglobin for isolation and cultivation of N. gonorrhoeae. It is also recommended for enriching Brain Heart Infustion Agar and Brain Heart Infusion Broth
Potato Dextrose Broth
Potato Dextrose Broth is used for the isolation, enumeration and identification of yeast and molds. It can be used in the analysis of dairy products, bottled drinks, frozen food and other types of food. It can also be used in the identification of fungi and yeasts in parallel with their cellular morphology or in methods of mirocultivation in slides. When the medium is to be used for enumeration of molds and yeasts, add to the medium, sterilized and cooled to 45-50 °C, approximately 14 mL of a sterilized 10% solution of tartaric acid to obtain a pH of 3.5.
Superior Plasmid Yield Through Enhanced Cell Growth Perfect for overnight or weekend cultures, CIRCLEGROW™ Medium is a super-rich bacterial growth medium that produces up to three times more plasmid DNA than traditional growth medium. CIRCLEGROW™ Medium consists of a protein and amino acid source, biological buffer, and a complex carbon source that gets metabolized at a much slower rate than glucose, thus prolonging the cell cycle and preventing cell death during the log phase of growth. Cells grown with CIRCLEGROW™® Medium remain healthy for more than two days and continue to divide slowly after the log phase of the growth has been completed. Reduce Hands-On Work and Preparation Time CIRCLEGROW™ cultures do not need to be constantly monitored by O.D. readings due to the incremental post-log cell growth. Obtain excellent yields of plasmid DNA from smaller culture volumes, and confidently leave cultures overnight or over the weekend. CIRCLEGROW™ capsules are the most convenient form of this unique growth media. Pre-mixed CIRCLEGROW™ is also available in bulk powder, single-use pouches, capsules and sterile liquid.
