General description

Fluid Thioglycollate Medium (FTM) is a critical component of our STERITEST® solution. Composition and growth performance of this medium comply with the European Pharmacopeia (EP) 2.6.1, United States Pharmacopeia (USP) 71 and Japanese Pharmacopeia (JP) 4.06. Our manufacturing approach ensures the highest level of quality for our media, improving accuracy and significantly reducing the risk of incorrect interpretation and false results. The appearance of the fluid is light-yellow, slightly opalescent and viscous liquid with a pink ring in suspension ≤1 cm. The pH of the product is 7.1 ± 0.2 and can be stored at 2-25°C. The incubation temperature varies between 30-35°C, with an incubation time of 7-14 days. The product is supplied as 12 bottles of 100 mL of medium, screw cap with septum closure that minimizes the risks of cross-contamination and optimizes the disinfection procedures.

Application

Fluid Thioglycollate Medium (FTM) is primarily used for the detection of anaerobic bacteria. However, it also enables aerobic bacterial detection. The QC organisms include Clostridium sporogenes (ATCC 19404; ATCC 11437), Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 6538) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (ATCC 9027). This medium is used for sterility testing by membrane filtration or direct inoculation.
