Description: Microzo Mannitol Salt Agar (MSA) Base Dehydrated Culture Media is a highly specialized medium designed for the selective isolation and differentiation of Staphylococcus species, particularly Staphylococcus aureus. This medium is formulated with a high concentration of sodium chloride (7.5%) and mannitol, which promotes the growth of halophilic bacteria while inhibiting non-halophilic organisms. The addition of phenol red indicator enables the differentiation of mannitol-fermenting Staphylococci, making it an essential tool for clinical and research microbiology.

Key Features:

  1. Selective Composition: The high salt concentration (7.5% sodium chloride) selectively supports the growth of Staphylococcus species while inhibiting most other bacteria, ensuring accurate isolation of the target organisms.
  2. Differentiation Capability: Enriched with mannitol and phenol red, this medium differentiates between mannitol-fermenting and non-fermenting Staphylococci based on color change, aiding in the identification of pathogenic strains like Staphylococcus aureus.
  3. Nutrient-Rich Medium: Formulated with peptones and beef extract, Microzo MSA Base provides a nutrient-rich environment that supports robust bacterial growth, enhancing the recovery and detection of Staphylococci.
  4. Standardized Formulation: Manufactured under stringent quality control standards, this dehydrated culture media ensures consistent performance and reproducibility, delivering reliable results across different batches and ensuring accuracy in microbiological assays.
  5. Easy Preparation: The user-friendly preparation protocol simplifies media preparation procedures, minimizing the likelihood of errors and optimizing laboratory workflow efficiency.


  1. Selective Isolation: Microzo MSA Base enables the selective isolation of Staphylococcus species, particularly Staphylococcus aureus, facilitating accurate identification and diagnosis in clinical microbiology.
  2. Differentiation of Pathogens: The ability to differentiate mannitol-fermenting Staphylococci through a clear color change (yellow colonies) enhances the specificity and reliability of bacterial identification.
  3. Enhanced Detection: By providing a nutrient-rich and selective environment, this agar base supports the robust growth and detection of Staphylococci, ensuring comprehensive microbial analysis.
  4. Consistent Results: With its standardized formulation and rigorous quality control measures, Microzo MSA Base ensures consistent performance and reproducible results, enhancing the reliability and validity of microbiological assays.
  5. Cost-effective Solution: Offering a cost-effective solution for selective and differential media preparation, this agar base optimizes resource utilization and reduces laboratory expenses.
  6. Streamlined Workflow: The straightforward preparation and use of Microzo MSA Base streamline laboratory procedures, saving time and labor, and boosting overall productivity and efficiency.
