The Use of Culture Media Made from Commercial Dried Yeast as a Routine Substitute for Meat Infusion Peptone Media.

Abstract

During the past few years many batches of meat infusion peptone broth prepared in our laboratory have failed to grow pneumococci and other kinds of bacteria that usually flourish in good batches of this medium. Because of this experience, media prepared from commercial dried yeast have been tested. Throughout a year's use they have proved to be uniformly reliable and efficient substitutes in all routine bacteriological procedures for which meat infusion peptone media are commonly used. The purpose of this paper is to report the method of preparation and the advantages and limitations of these yeast media.
