Directions
Suspend 33g of Modified Tryptone Soya Broth (mTSB) in 1 litre of distilled water. Mix well, dispense into final containers and sterilise by autoclaving at 121°C for 15 minutes. Allow the medium to cool to 50°C before adding a selective supplement as appropriate.

Description
Many selective broths have been formulated for the enrichment of Escherichia coli O157. mTSB is a nutritious, selective base, which was devised by Doyle and Shoeni1. The broth was incubated for at 37°C for 24 hours in shaken flasks. Szabo and co-workers2 also used mTSB and found incubation at 43°C with agitation gave better recovery rates from inoculated food samples.

Buffered Peptone Water (BPW) (CM0509), supplemented with VCC Selective Supplement (SR0190) was used for the isolation of Escherichia coli O157 from beef carcasses, bovine faeces and from milk and minced beef3.

In EHEC enrichment broth (EEB), VCC Selective Supplement is added to mTSB, which is used instead of BPW to overcome some of the inhibitory effects of the antibiotics on Escherichia coli O1574.

Both BPW-VCC (CM0509+SR0190) and EEB (CM0989+SR0190) are incubated for 6hr at 37°C3.

Tryptone Soya Broth (CM0129) has been modified by increasing the concentration of the buffer, dipotassium hydrogen phosphate, to 4g/l and the addition of 1.5g/l Bile Salts. The bile salts inhibit the growth of spore formers and enterococci, but allow the growth of Escherichia coli O157.
VCC Selective Supplement contains three antibiotics vancomycin for inhibition of Gram-positive organisms. Cefixime for the inhibition of Proteus spp. cefsulodin suppresses Pseudomonas spp.

Technique
mTSB can be used with either Novobiocin Selective Supplement (SR0181) or VCC Selective Supplement (SR0190) depending on which protocol is followed. VCC Selective Supplement is a highly selective supplement, which can be used either with mTSB, to give EHEC Enrichment Broth (EEB), or with Buffered Peptone Water (CM0509) depending on which protocol is followed.
