Clostridium difficile, commonly referred to as C. diff, is a prevalent and infectious anaerobic organism associated with diahrrea. Clostridium difficile is one of the most oxygen sensitive anaerobes, and although it is a spore former it can be difficult to culture. Anaerobe Systems manufactures a range of specialty media for growing and isolating Clostridium difficile.
Anaerobe Systems’ culture & transport media are sterilized, poured, and packaged under anaerobic conditions (PRAS media). There is no chance of oxygen contamination or damage any time during the manufacturing process. Our plates are pre-reduced and ready to use out of the package, without the need to leave them in an anaerobic environment for extended periods before inoculation.
