INTENDED USE

Hardy Diagnostics CRITERION™ Dextrose (Glucose) is chemically pure monosaccharide. It is added to culture media as a source of energy for bacteria and for the determination of fermentation reactions.

This is a raw material intended to be used in the making of prepared media products, which will require further processing, additional ingredients, or supplements.

SUMMARY

For fermentation tests it is usually added at a concentration of 0.5 to 1.0%.

STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE

Store the sealed bottle(s) containing dehydrated culture medium at 2-30ºC. Dehydrated culture medium is very hygroscopic. Keep lid tightly sealed. Protect dehydrated culture media from moisture and light. The dehydrated culture media should be discarded if it is not free-flowing or if the color has changed from its original white.

PRECAUTIONS

MATERIALS REQUIRED BUT NOT PROVIDED

Standard microbiological supplies and equipment such as autoclaves, incinerators, and incubators, etc., are not provided.

PHYSICAL APPEARANCE

CRITERION™ Dextrose (Glucose) powder should appear homogeneous, free-flowing, and white in color.
