Fosfomycin Agar Dilution panel
With an increase in the numbers of bacterial isolates resistant to first-line antibiotics, there has been a revival in the use of older drugs including fosfomycin. Although several commercial tests based on different techniques have been developed, Agar Dilution (AD) is considered the best method for performing Fosfomycin susceptibility testing so far.

The AD Fosfomycin 0.25-256 is the first and only (international patent pending) ready-to-use commercially available kit for performing the agar dilution antimicrobial susceptibility testing, in compliance with the CLSI and EUCAST standards, with 4 months shelf life at present.

The AD Fosfomycin panel comprises 12 wells, containing the antibiotic incorporated into an agar medium in different concentrations, i.e. 11 two-fold dilutions (0.25-256 μg/mL).

The ready-to-use Agar Dilution panels are available for custom versions with up to 4 weeks lead time.

TAT Broth
TAT (Tryptone-Azolectin-Tween) Broth is a liquid medium used for the microbiological examination of cosmetics and topical drugs, particularly from highly viscous or gelatinous materials.

This medium, also known as Fluid Casein Digest – Soy Lecithin – Polysorbate 20 Medium (SCDLP 20 Broth), complies with ISO 21149 for detection of aerobic mesophilic bacteria. Enzymatic digest of casein provides nitrogen, vitamins, minerals and amino acids essential for growth. Lecithin and polysorbate 20 neutralize preservatives in pharmaceutical products.

M-Green Yeast and Mold Agar pH modified
Selective medium for detection and enumeration of fungi in beverages
Peptones, yeast extract and dextrose provide nutrients for growth. Magnesium sulphate and potassium phosphate are the buffering agents. Diastase is a mixture of enzymes which hydrolyze starch. Bromocresol green is a pH indicator. The low pH inhibits the bacterial contamination. Agar is the solidifying agent.

Filter the sample through a sterile membrane and transfer the membrane on the agar surface. Then, cover the plate with the lid, turn it upside down and incubate at 30-35°C for 48 hours and up to 5 days in an aerobic atmosphere with increased humidity.

After incubation, colonies appearing on the filter surface can be counted. Mold colonies appear green and filamentous, whereas yeast colonies are green and opaque.
