Fluid Thioglycollate Medium (FTM) is a multi-purpose enriched differentiating media designed to test the aerotolerance of a wide range of bacteria. This video presents the process for preparation of FTM.
LB broth is used for maintaining and cultivating recombinant strains of Escherichia coli. The ingredients of LB broth are tryptone, yeast extract and Sodium Chloride. We show you how to prepare the LB medium.
An agar plate is a Petri dish that contains a growth medium (typically agar plus nutrients) used to culture microorganisms. We show you how to prepare the LB agar plate.
Mycoplasma detection agar (without crystal violet) is used with enrichments for the identification and cultivation of Mycoplasma. This video demonstrates the steps to prepare Mycoplasma agar.
Mycoplasma detection broth (without crystal violet) is used for the isolation and cultivation of Mycoplasma for research studies. This video shows you how to prepare the Mycoplasma broth.
Terrific Broth (TB) is an enriched medium used with glycerol in cultivating Escherichia coli. TB allows the bacteria to produce a greater number of recombinant proteins and plasmid yield. This video shows you how to prepare TB.
Tryptic Soy Broth (TSB) is a general purpose culture broth used to support the growth of a wide variety of aerobic, facultative and anaerobic bacteria. This video demonstrates the steps to prepare TSB medium.
