Pancreatic digests of casein are major ingredients of media used in the axenic cultivation of lumen-dwelling parasitic protozoa, especially Entamoeba, Giardia, and trichomonads. The digest used almost exclusively in the development of these media, Medo-Peptone (Trypticase BBL), has not been available since 1981. Moreover, none of dozens of similar type digests tested since then in our laboratory has proved equal to Medo-Peptone, and in the last two years it has become increasingly difficult to… CONTINUE READING
