Fluid Thioglycollate Medium with 0.5% Beef Extract is recommended by Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA, in the detection of viable bacteria in live vaccines. Various workers described the use of sulfhydryl compounds and low concentrations of agar, alone or in combination, to culture anaerobic organisms in a fluid broth under aerobic conditions. Other workers described the use of sodium thioglycollate in these broth media for the neutralization of mercurial preservatives. Sodium thioglycollate aIso lowers the oxidation-reduction potential of the media. Resazurin indicates the status of oxidation or aerobiosis. Dextrose is added to enhance growth.
