acumedia® TCBS Agar

• Intended Use: TCBS Agar is used for the selective isolation of Vibrio cholerae and other enteropathogenic vibrios.
• Product Summary and Explanation: TCBS Agar is an abbreviation for Thiosulfate-Citrate-Bile-Sucrose Agar. TCBS Agar is also
called Vibrio Selective Agar, and prepared according to the formula of Kobayashi et al. This formula is a modification of the
selective medium from Nakanishi. All pathogenic Vibrio spp., except Vibrio hollisae, will grow on TCBS Agar. This highly
selective agar meets the nutritional requirements of Vibrio spp., and allows vibrios to compete with intestinal flora. Vibrio spp. are
able to grow in media containing increased salt concentrations, and some species are halophilic. Infections have been associated
with ingestion of contaminated water and consumption of contaminated shellfish or seafood. Vibrio spp. are natural inhabitants of
seawater.

TCBS Agar is recommended for isolating Vibrio spp. from stool specimens, and specified in standard methods for food testing.
