INTENDED USE

Hardy Diagnostics CRITERION™ Oxbile is prepared specifically for differentiation of bile tolerant microorganisms.

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

Oxbile is dehydrated fresh bile. A 10% solution of dehydrated bile is equivalent to a fresh bile solution. It is usually incorporated into media (Bile Esculin Agar, Brilliant Green Bile Agar) used for the determination of entereric pathogens. It is also found in Littman Oxgall Agar, a selective fungal medium.

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 tan.

Store the prepared culture media at 2-30ºC.
