The modified Stuart media allows the conservation and transportation of a large number of pathological microorganisms, such as:
The most unstable organisms will remain viable for up to 24 hours and other for several days. The media is reduced due to the presence of thioglycolate, which difficults the enzymatic reactions of the bacteria.
The multiplication of the bacteria is prevented due to the lack of nitrogen in the media.
Swabs are sterilised by radiation.
Dimensions of the peel-pack: 38 x 210 mm.
Expiry date: 30 months from sterilisation date.
