Microzo Xylose Lysine Deoxycholate (XLD) Agar Base Dehydrated Culture Media is meticulously formulated for the selective isolation and differentiation of enteric pathogens, particularly Salmonella and Shigella species. This medium leverages xylose, lysine, and deoxycholate to facilitate precise identification through distinct biochemical reactions. Optimized for laboratory efficiency, Microzo XLD Agar Base is ideal for use in both clinical and research settings, ensuring high reliability and consistency in microbial testing.

  • Selective Inhibition: The incorporation of sodium deoxycholate ensures selective inhibition of Gram-positive organisms, enhancing the growth of target Gram-negative enteric bacteria.
  • Differentiation Capability: Differentiation of Salmonella and Shigella is achieved through lysine decarboxylation and hydrogen sulfide production, allowing for clear visual distinction based on colony morphology and color changes.
  • pH Indicator System: Phenol red serves as a pH indicator, facilitating easy identification of carbohydrate fermentation, which is crucial for distinguishing pathogenic bacteria.
  • Optimal Composition: Contains xylose, lysine and sodium thiosulfate, precisely balanced to support robust bacterial growth while maintaining selectivity.

  • High Sensitivity and Specificity: Microzo XLD Agar Base exhibits superior sensitivity and specificity, with documented performance metrics indicating over 95% accuracy in pathogen detection.
  • Enhanced Clarity in Results: The medium's ability to produce distinct colony coloration and morphology aids in rapid identification, significantly reducing the time required for diagnostic conclusions.
  • Consistent Performance: Stringent quality control measures ensure batch-to-batch consistency, providing dependable results across various laboratory applications.
  • Ease of Use: Dehydrated format simplifies preparation and storage, making it convenient for high-throughput laboratories while maintaining excellent shelf life.

Microzo XLD Agar Base Dehydrated Culture Media stands out as a crucial tool for microbiologists seeking precise and reliable differentiation of enteric pathogens, combining technical excellence with practical efficiency.
