Biokar XLD Agar (ISO 6579) - Pre-poured medium 20 plates Ø 90 mm BM08708 is a selective and differential culture medium used for the isolation and differentiation of Salmonella and Shigella species. It is designed for food and water testing, as well as clinical microbiology laboratories.


• Convenient and ready-to-use: The pre-poured plates save time and effort in preparation, ensuring easier handling in the laboratory.

• Selective agents: The inclusion of xylose, lysine, and desoxycholate inhibits the growth of unwanted microorganisms, enhancing the selectivity of the medium.

• Differential agents: Sodium thiosulfate and ferric ammonium citrate enable differentiation of Salmonella and Shigella species based on their ability to produce hydrogen sulfide (H2S).

• Quality controlled: Each lot undergoes stringent quality control to ensure consistency, sterility, selective properties, and differential performance.
