INTENDED USE

Hardy Diagnostics CRITERION™ Pancreatic Digest of Gelatin is a growth promoting peptone used in microbiological culture media, specifically in the cultivation of most nonfastidious 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

CRITERION™ Pancreatic Digest of Gelatin can be used in fermentation studies. When incorporated in media it will produce growth but at low levels. This product has a low cystine and tryptohane content and is deficient of carbohydrates.
