Urea Agar Base




For differentiating enteric bacteria based on urease activity by adding 40% sterile urea solution.

Peptone provides the carbon and nitrogen; maintain a balanced osmotic sodium chloride; potassium dihydrogen phosphate is buffers; decomposing bacteria urease urea medium, produce large amounts of ammonia, agar as medium coagulant.
