Crossley Milk Medium 500g
Thermo ScientificTM OxoidTM
A simple medium originally described by Crossley for the routine examination of canned food samples for anaerobic bacteria, this medium has evolved as the result of comparative trials carried out by Crossley with several standard media. It is capable of giving rapid growth without the use of special anaerobic apparatus, yet the bacteria detected may be provisionally identified by their reactions upon the medium.
