<Does anyone know how to make phenylethanol agar and it use?
Thanks in advance!!!!!>
You're most welcome. According to the Great God Difco, the formulation
is as follows:
Per Liter of DI H2O, add:
Tryptose, 10 g
Beef Extract, 3 g
NaCl, 5 g
Agar, 15 g
Phenylethanol, 2.5 g
Or you can buy it from Difco.
According to the same source, phenylethanol agar is a selective medium
used for the isolation of staphylococci and streptococci from specimens
which may also contain gram negative organisms. The phenylethanol
inhibits the gram negatives.
