Dilution Blanks are a buffered mineral salt base solution with reducing agents, designed as a holding medium for maintaining viability of microorganisms, especially anaerobes, in order to determine the number of viable organisms present in a sample. This medium is prepared, dispensed, and packaged under oxygen-free conditions to prevent the formation of oxidized products prior to use.Dilution Blanks are a buffered mineral salt solution with sodium thioglycollate and L-cysteine added to provide a reduced environment. Bacterial cells are often diluted from their original dense concentration to a sparse concentration to become suitable for use in microscopy, quantitation, genetic analysis, or metabolic studies. This formulation has been prepared to provide an environment which maintains the viability of most microorganisms without significant multiplication. Dilution Blanks have been designed to meet the stringent viability requirements of obligate anaerobes.
