Description

Isolate and cultivate anaerobic bacteria including Brucella, from clinical and non-clinical specimens with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Brucella Agar prepared plates with 5% Sheep Blood, Hemin and Vitamin K. Brucella Agar with 5% Sheep Blood, Hemin and Vitamin K is prepared according to the formulation of the American Health Association (APHA)1. Finegold reported Brucella agar with 5% sheep blood is preferable to heart infusion agar for the cultivation of anaerobic bacteria2. The addition of Vitamin K, hemin and sheep blood in the medium makes it appropriate for the cultivation of many anaerobes.

Brucellosis is a highly contagious zoonosis caused by ingestion of unpasteurized milk or undercooked meat from infected animals, or close contact with their secretions.

Brucella Agar is developed for the cultivation of Brucella species from diagnostic specimens such as blood, and from foods and potentially contaminated material.

  • Prepared according to the formulation of the American Health Association (APHA)1.
  • Preferable to Heart Infusion Blood Agar Base for the cultivation of anaerobic bacteria2.
  • Ready-to-use convenience of prepared media.

Brucella Agar with 5% Sheep Blood, Hemin and Vitamin K is a rich nutrient base that supports the growth of fastidious organisms.  The media contains dextrose which provides an energy source; peptones to provide nitrogenous compounds, and yeast extract to supply B vitamins. Growth factors required by some anaerobic bacteria are provided for in the added sheep blood, which also allows the demonstration of hemolytic reactions. Hemin and vitamin K are incorporated into the medium to enhance the growth of gram-positive spore-formers and Bacteroides species.
