Modified Lauryl Sulphate Tryptose Broth
Thermo ScientificTM OxoidTM
Selectively enrich Cronobacter spp. from milk and milk samples using Thermo Scientific™ Oxoid™ Modified Lauryl Sulphate Tryptose Broth Base (Dehydrated). Modified Lauryl Sulphate Tryptose Broth Base was originally described by Guillaume-Gentil et al. for the selective enrichment of Cronobacter spp. The high salt concentration of the medium restricts the growth of other members of Enterobacteriaceae and the combination of vancomycin and sodium lauryl sulphate inhibits the growth of Gram-positive organisms commonly isolated in production environments.
