MacConkey Agar is used for the isolation and differentiation of Gram-negative enteric bacilli. Conforms to Harmonized USP/EP/JP Requirements.
Product Summary and Explanation
MacConkey Agar is based on the bile salt-neutral red-lactose agar of MacConkey. The original MacConkey medium was used to differentiate strains of Salmonella typhosa from members of the coliform group. Formula modifications improved growth of Shigella and Salmonella strains. These modifications include the addition of 0.5% sodium chloride, decreased agar content, altered bile salts, and neutral red concentrations. The formula modifications improved differential reactions between enteric pathogens and coliforms.
MacConkey Agar is recommended for the detection and isolation of Gram-negative organisms from clinical, dairy, food, water, pharmaceutical, and industrial sources. MacConkey Broth conforms to Harmonized United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), European Pharmacopoeia (EU), and Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP).
