Contact Slides YM are developed for easy and flexible microbiological monitoring of flat and curved surfaces. 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. Rose-Bengal Chloramphenicol Agar is a selective medium for the enumeration of yeasts and molds. Chloramphenicol, streptomycin and Rose-Bengal are included as selective agents to inhibit bacterial growth. Rose-Bengal also restricts the size and height of colonies of the rapidly growing molds, thereby facilitates the detection of slow-growing fungi by preventing overgrowth.
Synonyms: Rose-Bengal Agar
Melting Point: >95 C
Application: Contact Slides YM are designed for the determination of the yeast and mold count on dry, sanitized surfaces as well as personnel in controlled clean room environments of production lines, i.e. food and beverages as well as non-sterile and terminally sterilized pharmaceuticals.
