INTENDED USE

Hardy Diagnostics CRITERION™ Maltose is a chemically pure disaccharide which can be used in bacteriological culture media. It is used in the monohydrate form.

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

CRITERION™ Maltose (4-O-a-D-Glucopyranosyl-D-gluscose) or malt sugar is often used as a nutrient in culture media.

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
