Wilkins-Chalgren Agar is used for the cultivation of anaerobic microorganisms.
Product Summary and Explanation
Wilkins-Chalgren Agar was designed by Wilkins and Chalgren for use in determining minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC’s) of antibiotics for anaerobic bacteria by the agar dilution procedure. This medium wasselected because it does not require the addition of blood to support satisfactory growth of most anaerobes. Anaerobic bacteria cause a variety of human infections including endocarditis, meningitis, wound infections following bowel surgery or trauma, and bacteremia. The survival of anaerobic bacteria is dependent on theirsensitivity to oxygen, nutritional requirements, appropriate collection, culture medium, and incubation time and temperature.
