Tryptic Soy Agar- referred to as Soybean-Casein Digest Agar Medium by the United States Pharmacopeia- is a general purpose, non-selective growth media that supports the growth of most nonfastidious Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria as well as many yeasts and molds. It also supports the growth of many obligate anaerobes when incubated anaerobically. Enzymatic digests of casein and soybean meal provide a source of nitrogen. Osmotic balance is achieved through the inclusion of sodium chloride, while agar serves as a gelling agent. The formulation of BACGroTM TSA conforms to the Harmonized United States Pharmacopeia (USP)1, European Pharmacopeia (EP)2 and Japanese Pharmacopeia (JP)3 Standards.
