Tryptic Soy Broth is a general-purpose liquid medium used in qualitative procedures for the sterility testing, enrichment, and cultivation of fastidious microorganisms. The formulation contains a combination of casein and soy peptones supplying organic nitrogen, particularly amino acids and long-chained peptides. Sodium chloride maintains the osmotic equilibrium and dextrose serves as a source of carbohydrate and energy.
Tryptic Soy Broth is a widely used medium for culturing aerobic gram-positive, gram-negative bacteria, fungus, routine blood cultures, and microbial biofilms. It is also been used as a growth medium to culture Staphylococcus aureus strains and as a growth medium for E.coli in the bacterial-killing assay (BKA) with bird plasma samples.
