Medium is the term given to the combination of ingredients that will support the growth and cultivation of microorganisms by providing all the essential nutrients required for the growth (that is, multiplication) in order to cultivate these microorganisms in large numbers to study them. Specific Media : Specific Media Defined media are media composed of pure ingredients in carefully measured concentrations dissolved in double distilled water i.e., the exact chemical composition of the medium is known. Typically, they contain a simple sugar as the carbon and energy source, an inorganic nitrogen source, various mineral salts and if necessary growth factors (purified amino acids, vitamins, purines and pyrimidines Need for Culture Media : Need for Culture Media It is usually essential to obtain a culture by grwoing the organism in an artificial medium. If more than one species or type of organism are present each requires to be carefully separated or isolated in pure culture. Several organism need the determination of Antibiotic sensitivity pattern for optimal antibiotic selection Basic requirements of culture media : Basic requirements of culture media Nutrients - Energy source - Carbon source - Nitrogen source Mineral salts – Sulphate, phosphates, chlorides & carbonates of K, Mg & Ca. A suitable pH – 7.2 – 7.4 Accessory growth factors - Tryptophan for Salmonella typhi - X & V factors for H. influenzae Pouring the Culture Plates : Pouring the Culture Plates Petri dish with Media : Petri dish with Media Plate: provide large surface for isolation and observation of colonies Using a sterile loop or a sterile swab streak your sample on the petri plate Important let your sterilized loop cool before you pick up your sample Classification of Culture media : Classification of Culture media Based on the consistency: Liquid -- Peptone water, Nutrient broth Semisolid -- Nutrient agar stabs Solid -- Blood agar, Serum agar Based on Oxygen requirement: -- Aerobic medium -- Anaerobic media Aerobic Media : Aerobic Media Simple media Complex media May be Synthetic or Defined Medium - Enriched media - Differential media - Enrichment media - Selective media Semisyntetic Medium - Sugar media - Transport media Aerobic media : Aerobic media Liquid media - Peptone water(1% peptone +0.5%Nacl + 100 ml water) - Nutrient broth ( peptone water + 1% meat extract Solid media - Nutrient agar (nutrient broth + 2% Agar) Use: To grow non-fastidious microorganisms Simple media- consists of only basic necessities Liquid Medium : Liquid Medium Difficulat to identify all types of organisms Suitable for isolation of bacteria from Blood culturing and water analysis Peptone : Peptone Peptone contain partially digested proteins Proteases Polypeptides Aminoacids Inorganic salts Phosphates Potassium and Magnesium Riboflavin Meat exract called as Lab lemco Nutrient Agar : Nutrient Agar Contain 2% agar added to Nutrient agar commonly used Concentration can be increased to 6% to prevent swarming Can be reduced to 0’5% Pigment producing Staphylococci : Pigment producing Staphylococci Complex media : Complex media Nutrient agar + 5 to 10% sheep blood Melt the sterile nutrient agar by steaming, cool, to 450 c Add the blood aseptically with constant shaking Mix the blood with molten nutrient agar thoroughly but gently avoiding froth formation Immediately pour in to the Petri dishes or tubes and allow to set Enriched media: Blood agar Use: To cultivate all the fastidious organisms Enriched Medium : Enriched Medium To culture medium Blood serum or egg are added to medium eg Blood agar Chocolate agar Egg Different types of hemolysis on Blood Agar : Different types of hemolysis on Blood Agar Other Enrichments – Chocolate Agar : Other Enrichments – Chocolate Agar Several organic materials are added to the basic constituents of the Medium such as Blood, yeast, yeast extract etc Chocolate agar : Chocolate agar Enrichment Medium : Enrichment Medium If the sample contain more than one type of bacteria, undesired bacteria grwoth can be reduced or eliminated. The desired organism is facilitated to grow Eg Tetrathionate broth Selenite F broth Selective media : Selective media Serve the same purpose as Enrichment media but are solid in consistency - Wilson & Blair’s medium - - Lowenstein Jensen’s medium - Use: To cultivate Salmonella, Shigella & Mycobacteria Deoxycholate citrate Agar : Deoxycholate citrate Agar Suitable for isolation of dysentery bacilli, food poisoning Salmonella and S.paratyphi B, and less so, but superior to MacConkey agar for S. typhi. It is a heat sensitive medium It should not be autoclaved or remelted When prepared from commercial medium it should be dissolved and sterilized at 1000c for a short period Indicator Medium Wilson-Blair medium : Indicator Medium Wilson-Blair medium Indicate by change of color Sulphite to sulphide in Wilson-Blair medium S.typhi reduces sulphite to sulphide in the presence of Glucose Differential Medium Mac Conkey's agar : Differential Medium Mac Conkey's agar Bringing out different characters of bacteria their atypical characters Mac Conkey’s medium Contain peptone, Lactose Agar, Neutral red and taurocholate and show grwoth of Lactose fermenters as pink colored colonies MacConkey agar : MacConkey agar MacConkey agar is useful medium for cultivation of enterobacteria It contains a bile salt to inhibit non intestinal bacteria Lactose in combination with Neutral red distinguish the lactose fermenting from the non lactose fermenting Salmonella and Dysentery group Lactose fermenting and Non lactose fermenting : Lactose fermenting and Non lactose fermenting Carbohydrate media : Carbohydrate media Peptone water – 100 ml, Desired sugar 1 gm% and Andrade's indicator – 0.005% soln(1ml) Dissolve the desired carbohydrate in peptone water and steam for 30 min or sterilize by filtration.
