- PRODUCT DETAILS
Xylose Identification Discs are supplied by Micromaster. They are available as filter paper discs of 10 mm diameter bearing letters “Xy” in continuous printing style. These discs are used to differentiate and identify bacteria on the basis of the ability to ferment different carbohydrates. The utilization of the carbohydrates can be detected by gas production (carbon dioxide) in liquid media and/or color change of pH indicator because of the acid production. It is advisable to store these discs between 2-8°C for maximum efficiency.
