Product Summary and Explanation
MacConkey Broth is a modification of the original bile salt broth recommended by MacConkey, containing 0.5% sodium taurocholate and litmus as an indicator.4 MacConkey suggested further variations of this formula using neutral red indicator instead of litmus. Childs and Allen demonstrated the inhibitory effect of neutral red and substituted the less inhibitory Bromcresol purple. MacConkey Broth conforms to Harmonized United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), European Pharmacopoeia (EP), and Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP).
