Principles Tryptone and Yeast Extract supply nitrogenous compounds, carbohydrates, and vitamins. Sodium Chloride maintains the osmotic balance. Potassium Phosphate serves as buffering agent. Sodium Carbonate is a neutralizing agent. Dextrose is the fermentable carbohydrate. Manganese Chloride, Magnesium Sulfate, and Ferrous Sulfate provide ions used in bacterial replication. Tween 80 is a surfactant for enhanced nutrient uptake and a source of fatty acids. Agar is the gelifying agent.
