Product Summary and Explanation
In 1955, Leavitt et al. discovered Tryptic Soy Agar supported excellent growth of aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms. Tryptic Soy Agar is a nutritious base and a variety of supplements are added to enhance the medium, including Lecithin and Tween 80. The Lecithin and Tween 80 inactivate some preservatives that may inhibit bacterial growth, reducing “preservative carryover”. Tryptic Soy Agar W/ Lecithin & Tween 80 is recommended for determining the sanitation efficiency of containers, equipment, and work area (environmental monitoring).
