Dehydrated Culture Media

One of the major developments in microbiology was Robert Koch’s use of a solid culture medium on which bacteria would grow. Bacteria must meet certain nutritional requirements in order to grow. A nutritional material prepared for the growth of microorganisms in a laboratory is called a Culture Media, and the microbes that grow and multiply in or on a culture medium are referred to as a Culture. Over the years many types of nutrient media were developed for the cultivation of bacteria. These can be broadly classified as Broth Media, Agar Media & Semisolid Media. HiMedia is one of the branded manufacturers for the Nutrient Medias in the world and offers a very broad range of media formulations, standard media & customer specified media in dehydrated form for use in different fields. This also includes specified media by various pharmacopoeias recommended for different applications such as sterility testing, microbial limit tests etc.
