acumedia® Deoxycholate Citrate Agar

• Intended Use: Deoxycholate Citrate Agar is used for the isolation and differentiation of Gram-negative enteric bacilli.
• Product Summary: Deoxycholate Citrate Agar is a modification of Deoxycholate Agar formulated by Leifson. His original
formula, Deoxycholate Agar, was used for isolation of intestinal pathogens and enumeration of intestinal pathogens in milk and
water. Deoxycholate Agar was an improvement over other media because citrates and sodium deoxycholate worked well as
inhibitors. Leifson modified the original medium by increasing the concentration of Sodium Citrate and Sodium Deoxycholate for
improved recovery of Salmonella spp. and Shigella spp. Deoxycholate Citrate Agar effectively isolates intestinal pathogens by
inhibiting coliforms and many Proteus spp. This medium is used to screen Salmonella spp. and Shigella spp. from clinical
specimens.
