Gms / Litre
**Formula adjusted, standardized to suit performance parameters Directions
Suspend 36.02 grams in 460 ml distilled water. Heat to boiling to dissolve the medium completely. Sterilize by autoclaving
at15 lbs pressure (121°C) for 15 minutes. Cool to 45-50°C. Aseptically add sterile contents of 1 vial of L. mono Enrichment Supplement I (FD214) and sterile rehydrated contents of L .mono Selective Supplement I (FD212), L .mono Selective Supplement II (FD213). Mix well and pour into sterile Petri plates.
Warning : Lithium chloride is harmful. Avoid bodily contact and inhalation of vapours. On contact with skin wash with plenty Principle And Interpretation
Listeria monocytogenes is a gram-positive foodborne human pathogen responsible for serious infections in pregnant women that may ultimately result in abortion, stillbirth, birth of a child with neonatal listeriosis and meningitis or primary bacteremia in adults and juveniles. The pathogenicity of Listeria ivanovii for humans is uncertain. Since L. monocytogenes and L. innocua have similar biochemical properties, they cannot be differentiated on traditional media (PALCAM, Oxford). L. mono Differential Agar Base is based on the formulation of Ottoviani and Agosti (1, 2) for the selective and differential isolation of Listeria monocytogenes from food and animal feeds.
Meat peptone, casein enzymic hydrolysate, yeast extract and sodium pyruvate provide essential growth nutrients and nitrogenous substances. Glucose is the fermentable carbohydrate. Sodium chloride maintains osmotic equilibrium. Phosphate buffers the medium. Lithium chloride and added selective supplements (FD212 and FD213) inhibit accompanying microflora and allow the growth of Listeria species. Listeria species hydrolyse the chromogenic substrate which produces green coloured colonies. Differentiation of Listeria monocytogenes from other Listeria species is based on phosphatidylinositol- specific phospholipase C (PIPLC) activity. Phospholipase C enzyme hydrolyses the purified substrate (FD214) added to the medium resulting in an opaque halo around Listeria monocytogenes colonies.
