PLATES STREP SELECT 20BX

  • Group A Selective Strep Agar with 5% Sheep Blood (ssA) is recommended as a primary selective plating medium for the isolation of group A streptococci (S. pyogenes) from throat cultures and other specimens in which the presence of S. pyogenes is suspected
  • Group B streptococci will also grow on this medium; most other streptococci, neisseriae, staphylococci and gram-negative bacteria are inhibited
  • The medium is designed for use in conjunction with Taxo A (bacitracin, 0.04 unit) discs for presumptive identification of S. pyogenes
