Product Summary and Explanation
Quastel and Stephenson found the presence of small amounts of a compound containing an –SH group (cysteine, thioglycollic acid, and glutathione) permitted “aerobic” growth of Clostridium sporogenes. Falk, Bucca, and Simmons discovered the advantages of using small quantities of agar in detecting contaminants during sterility testing. Brewer demonstrated the value of a small amount of agar and a reducing substance in this medium.
Thioglycollate Medium W/O Indicator is used for cultivating and detecting microorganisms in normally sterile materials, especially those containing mercurial preservatives when the oxidation-reduction indicator is not present or required. Thioglycollate Medium w/o Indicator is the medium of choice for diagnostic testing, where lack of an indicator avoids possible toxicity to organisms.
