D/E Neutralizing Broth is used for testing and neutralizing of antiseptics and disinfectants.
Product Summary and Explanation
D/E Neutralizing Broth was developed by Dey and Engley to neutralize a broad spectrum of disinfectants and preservative antimicrobial chemicals, including quaternary ammonium compounds, phenolics, iodine, chlorine preparations, mercurials, formaldehyde, and glutaraldehyde. D/E Neutralizing media neutralize higher concentrations of residual antimicrobials when compared with other standard neutralizing formulations, such as Letheen media, Thioglycollate media, and Neutralizing Buffer.
Total neutralization of disinfectants is critical. Disinfectant residues can result in a false-negative (no-growth) test. D/E Neutralizing Broth effectively neutralizes the inhibitor action of disinfectant carryover, allowing differentiation between bacteriostasis and the true bactericidal action of disinfectant chemicals. This is a critical characteristic to consider when evaluating a disinfectant. D/E Neutralizing Broth is recommended for use in disinfectant evaluations, environmental sampling (swab and contact plate methods), and testing of water-miscible cosmetics.
