Each contact slide is individually sealed in the transparent and flexible primary backing film made from PET and provides a rectangular surface of 25 cm2. Tryptic Soy Agar (TSA, Soybean Casein Digest Agar) is a complex medium for cultivation and isolation of a wide range of bacteria, yeasts and molds. The medium is supplemented with neutralizers such as lecithin, polysorbate 80 and histidine.
