Sterility Media

Fluid Thioglycollate Medium: liquid enrichment medium used for sterility control of pharmaceutical products and for cultivation and isolation of fastidious anaerobic and aerobic microorganisms.

Tryptic Soy Broth (TSB): nutritious medium used for the detection, isolation and cultivation of fastidious and nonfastidious microorganisms including bacteria and fungi from clinical specimens, environmental sources and other materials. TSB is also available as triple-wrapped and gamma-irradiated bottles, particularly suitable for use in restricted areas and for aseptic process simulations (media fill trial) in the pharmaceutical industry.
Rinsing Fluids

Fluid A : used for dissolving or diluting samples without affecting the viability of contaminating microorganisms. Fluid A is also available as gamma-irradiated double bagged products, particularly suitable for use in restricted areas like isolators and clean rooms.

Fluid D : used for diluting or rinsing when performing sterility testing suitable for oily products or materials containing disinfectants.

Fluid K : sterile diluent used for rinsing membranes during sterility testing by filtration.
It is formulated to meet the USP requirements and is recommended for use with substances containing petrolatum/oil.
