Microzo Triple Sugar Iron (TSI) Agar Base Dehydrated Culture Media is a highly specialized medium designed for the differentiation of enteric bacteria based on their ability to ferment carbohydrates and produce hydrogen sulfide. This medium is essential for distinguishing between various Gram-negative enteric bacilli, including members of the Enterobacteriaceae family.

  • Carbohydrate Fermentation: Contains three sugars (glucose, lactose, and sucrose) to distinguish between different metabolic pathways of enteric bacteria.
  • Hydrogen Sulfide Production: The inclusion of sodium thiosulfate and ferric ammonium citrate allows for the detection of H2S production, with positive results indicated by black precipitate formation.
  • pH Indicator System: Phenol red is used as a pH indicator, enabling easy visualization of acid production from carbohydrate fermentation, with yellow indicating acidic conditions and red indicating alkaline conditions.
  • Dual Environment Testing: The slant/butt design allows for simultaneous aerobic and anaerobic environment testing, providing comprehensive results on the metabolic characteristics of the bacteria.

  • Comprehensive Differentiation: TSI Agar Base provides a robust framework for differentiating enteric bacteria based on carbohydrate fermentation and H2S production, facilitating accurate identification of pathogens like Salmonella and Shigella.
  • Reliable and Reproducible Results: Rigorous quality control ensures consistent media performance, with documented reliability metrics showing high reproducibility across different batches and laboratory settings.
  • Clear Visual Indicators: The use of phenol red as a pH indicator and the visible formation of black precipitate for H2S production ensure straightforward interpretation of results, minimizing the risk of diagnostic errors.
  • Convenient Preparation: The dehydrated format of TSI Agar Base simplifies media preparation and storage, making it practical for use in high-throughput laboratories while maintaining a long shelf life.
