Microbiological Culture Media

There are many different types of media that can be used to grow specific microbes, and even promote microorganisms, testing the antibiotic sensitivities, analysis of water and food, industrial microbiology, and other activities.

A medium is used to select and growing specific microorganisms or to help identifying a particular species. In these cases, the function of the medium also depends on its composition. In addition to nutrients necessary for the growth of all bacteria, special-purpose media contain one or more chemical compounds that are essential for their functional specificity. These include Selective, Differential and Enriched Media.
