Suspend 29g in 500ml of distilled water and bring gently to the boil to dissolve completely. Sterilise by autoclaving at 121°C for 15 minutes. Allow to cool to approximately 50°C and aseptically add the contents of one vial of Yersinia Selective Supplement SR0109 reconstituted as directed in the instructions for use that accompany the product. Mix gently and pour into sterile Petri dishes.
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 medium at 2-8°C for not more than 24 hours.
Some strains of Yersinia enterocolitica may grow poorly or not at all. Other species of Yersinia may grow along with some enteric organisms. It is therefore essential that full identification tests are carried out on suspect colonies.
