Product description

Ready-to-use SSL Broth can be used to cultivate acid-tolerant microorganisms such as lactic acid bacteria, acetic acid bacteria, yeasts and moulds from non-alcoholic beverages.
It allows the enrichment of even large sample volumes.
SSL Broth can also be used for pre-enrichment with detection on OFS Agar.

Based on orange serum agar, ready-to-use OFS Agar allows the quantitative detection of acid-tolerant microorganisms, for example in fruit juices and fruit juice concentrates.

SSL Broth and OFS Agar offer the following user benefits:

  • Ready to use – direct use as a liquid medium or liquefaction of the agar in the bottle
  • Universally applicable – selective enrichment alone or in combination with agar
  • Reliable results after 2-3 days – simple detection of acid-tolerant microorganisms
