Brucella Agar Base with supplement is recommended for enrichment, isolation and cultivation of Brucella or Campylobacter species from clinical and nonclinical specimens. Brucella species are highly fastidious and therefore require a nutrient rich medium to be able to grow. Brucella Agar Base is used for the isolation and cultivation of Brucella species. Brucella Medium is a modified medium formulated to support growth of fastidious bacteria like Brucella, streptococci, pneumococci, Listeria, Neisseria meningitides and Haemophilus influenzae. Tryptone and peptone provide nitrogen and carbon source, long chain amino acids, vitamins and other essential nutrients. Yeast extract serves as a source of vitamin B complex, and nitrogenous nutrients. Sodium bisulphite is a reducing agent and sodium chloride helps to maintain the osmotic equilibrium of the medium. Dextrose serves as an energy source.
