Biokar Desoxycholate lactose Agar 500 grams BK065HA is a selective and differential medium used for the isolation and differentiation of enteric bacteria based on their lactose fermentation and hydrogen sulfide production abilities.


• Selective and differential: The medium contains desoxycholate, which inhibits the growth of certain bacteria, allowing for the selective isolation of enteric bacteria. It also differentiates lactose fermenting and non-fermenting bacteria based on colony color.

• Easy differentiation: Bacteria that ferment lactose produce yellow colonies, while non-fermenting bacteria produce colorless colonies, aiding in their identification.

• Identification of hydrogen sulfide producers: Bacteria that produce hydrogen sulfide form distinct black colonies, facilitating the detection of certain bacterial species.

• High-quality: Manufactured by Biokar Diagnostics, a reputable brand known for its reliable microbiological culture media.

• Wide applications: Useful for the detection and isolation of enteric bacteria, such as Salmonella, Shigella, and Escherichia coli.
