Intended Use: Anaerobic Agar is used for cultivating anaerobic microorganisms
Principles of the Procedure: Peptone provides the nitrogen, vitamins and amino acids in Anaerobic Agar. Dextrose is a carbon source. Sodium chloride maintains the osmotic equilibrium. Sodium thioglycollate and sodium formaldehyde sulfoxylate are reducing agents. Methylene blue serves as an indicator of anaerobiosis with a blue color indicating the presence of oxygen. Agar is the solidifying agent.
