Product Summary and Explanation
XL (Xylose Lysine) Agar Base was developed by Taylor4 for isolating and differentiating Gram-negative enteric bacilli. XL Agar Base was supplemented with sodium thiosulfate, ferric ammonium citrate, and sodium deoxycholate to develop a more selective medium, XLD Agar. XLD Agar was developed principally for isolating Shigella spp. and Providencia spp., and shown to be an effective differential media.
