Gold Standard Fastidious Anaerobe Agar from Lab M
|Mixed anaerobes on Lab M's Fastidious Anaerobe Agar (FAA)|| |
Lab M's Fastidious Anaerobe Agar is recognised as a Gold Standard medium for the primary isolation of fastidious anaerobic organisms. It is capable of growing most clinically significant anaerobes and comparative studies have shown it to be superior to other formulations. (Heginbotham et al., 1990)
| Specific growth promoting agents include: |
The inclusion of sodium pyruvate not only helps neutralise hydrogen peroxide, it also acts as an energy source for Veillonella and other organisms. Vitamin K and sodium succinate provide essential growth factors for some anaerobes as does the 0.1% glucose. This low level of glucose prevents excess acid and alcohol production, which can inhibit colony development.
