Product Summary and Explanation
Tryptic Soy Broth, a general purpose medium, is commonly referred to as Soybean-Casein Digest Medium, and abbreviated as TSB. This medium was originally developed for use without blood in determining the effectiveness of sulfonamides against pneumococci and other organisms. Clostridia and non-sporulating anaerobes grow luxuriantly in this broth when incubated under anaerobic conditions. TSB is recommended for testing bacterial contaminants in cosmetics and complies with established standards in the food industry. TSB was chosen by the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service for detecting viable bacteria in live vaccines.
Tryptic Soy Broth is recommended by the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS) for inoculum preparation in disk diffusion sensitivity tests. TSB conforms to Harmonized United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), European Pharmacopoeia (EU), and Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP).The rich nutritional base of TSB, supplemented with SPS and CO2, is an excellent broth for blood cultures in clinical applications. With the addition of 6.5% NaCl, TSB can be used for the selective growth of group D streptococci.
