How to prepare Actero™ Listeria Enrichment Media1

Achieving optimum enrichment media performance and accurate pathogen test results largely depends on the precise, step-by-step preparation and storage of the media.

We have prepared an instruction video below to guide you through the five main steps on how to correctly prepare the Actero™ Enrichment Media by using the autoclave method. These steps are:

  1. Basic materials list
  2. Clean glassware or containers
  3. How to prepare and sterilize the enrichment broth
  4. Storing the prepared broth
  5. Trouble shooting

In this video, we have used Actero™ Listeria Enrichment Media as an example. These steps apply for preparing media volumes as small as 1L to as much as 10L using correctly sized materials.

Please exactly follow this media preparation method to ensure the proper enrichment of your sample, and that the media can selectively and accurately target the intended microorganism.
