Chocolate Agar is used for the isolation of Neisseria gonorrhoeae from chronic and acute gonococcal infections. It is advisable to store this product between 15-25C. Composition (in gm/L) is as follows:

Proteose peptone (20.00)

Dextrose (0.50)

Disodium phosphate (5.00)

Agar (15.00)

Haemoglobin (2.00)

Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a gram-negative bacterium which causes gonorrhoea, but sometimes it is also found in the throat. The cultivation medium for gonococci ideally should be a rich nutrient base with blood, either partially lysed or completely lysed. The diagnosis and control of gonorrhoea have been improved by making use of laboratory methods for detecting, isolating and studying N. gonorrhoeae. Chocolate Agar Base, with the addition of supplements, exhibits excellent growth of the gonococcus without overgrowth by contaminating organisms. G.C. Agar can also be used in place of Chocolate Agar Base, which gives slightly better results than Chocolate Agar. The diagnosis and control of gonorrhoea have been greatly facilitated by improved laboratory methods for detecting, isolating and studying N. gonorrhoea.
