Diagnostic Sensitivity Test Agar, Oxoid Composition
|Veal infusion solids|
|pH 7.4 + 0.2 @ 25°C|
Diagnostic Sensitivity Test Agar, Oxoid Preparation:
Add 40 g to 1 litre of distilled water. Bring to the boil to dissolve completely. Sterilise by autoclaving at 121°C for 15 minutes.
For blood agar, cool the base to 50°C and add 7% of Defibrinated Horse Blood SR0050. Mix with gentle rotation and pour into Petri dishes (12 ml for a 9 cm dish) or other containers.
RECONSTITUTION AND MIXING SHOULD BE PERFORMED IN A FLASK AT LEAST 2.5 TIMES THE VOLUME OF MEDIUM TO ENSURE ADEQUATE AERATION OF THE BLOOD.
Storage conditions and Shelf life
Store the dehydrated medium at 10-30°C and use before the expiry date on the label.
Store the prepared agar plates at 2-8°C.
Diagnostic Sensitivity Test Agar has reduced thymidine activity and this will affect its performance as a primary isolation medium.
