Product Summary and Explanation
Tryptic Soy Broth (TSB) is a general purpose medium that is commonly referred to as Soybean-Casein Digest Medium. Acutone TSB (Non-animal) was developed as an alternative to Tryptic Soy Broth (7164), and is completely free of animal-origin components. Over the past decade, detection of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) and Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSE) in animals has caused great concern among pharmaceutical companies. Acutone TSB (Non-animal) fits a role in this regulated industry. This industry has a need for a nutritious, rich medium that will support the growth of fastidious microorganisms and contains no animal products.
TSB is recommended for testing in cosmetics, food industry, and chosen by the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service for detecting bacteria in live vaccines. Acutone TSB (Non-animal) is an alternative to Tryptic Soy Broth.
