Intented use and fields of application

Slanetz and Bartley Selective Agar for the isolation and identification of Enterococci in water (BS EN ISO 7899-2:2000).

The Sodium Azide contained in the Slanetz and Bartley Selective Agar inhibits non-target microbiological flora ensuring a high selectivity for Enterococci. Tri-phenyl-tetrazolium chloride is added to the medium so that Enterococci colonies are visualised as red, maroon or pink coloured colonies.

The composition of this medium meets the requirements of the Microbiology of Drinking Water (MoDW) 2012 Part 5 and BS EN ISO 7899-2:2000.
