Store the prepared medium at 2-8°C.
Fresh media should be prepared as required. Molten agar should not be kept longer than 4 hours. Medium should not be stored and remelted. If swarming colonies of Proteus species are a problem in food samples then the incubation temperature can be lowered to 20°C for a period of 3-5 days. Chilled foods may carry a wide range of pseudomonads and the colonies on CFC Medium, incubated at lower temperatures, may be Pseudomonas fluorescens or Pseudomonas putida as well as Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Aeromonas species will also appear as pink/brown colonies, particularly from fish products.
