January 2001

Bacteriological Analytical Manual

Trypticase or tryptone 10 g
NaCl 10 g
Agar 20 g
Distilled water 1 liter

Suspend ingredients and boil to dissolve agar. For slants, dispense into tubes. Autoclave 15 min at 121°C. Solidify tubes as slants. Cool medium for plates to 45-50°C and pour into sterile petri dishes.

For T1N2 agar, use 20 g NaCl rather than the 10 g specified for T1N1 agar.
