OXOID GC AGAR BASE

Code: CM0367

Oxoid GC Agar Base has been formulated to include Special Peptone LP0072 which is a mixture of meat and plant enzymatic digests. The presence of starch ensures that toxic metabolites produced by neisseria are absorbed. Phosphate buffers are included to prevent changes in pH due to amine production that would affect the survival of the organism.
