Transport Media


Transport media are used for sampling and transport of samples. The survival of microorganisms in the sample material between the sampling site and laboratory analysis is important for a good transport medium. The choice of suitable transport media is therefore crucial for a reliable diagnosis.

SSI Diagnostica transport media

SSI Diagnostica transport media include Stuarts Transport Medium and SSI Diagnostica Transport Medium for biopsies.

SSI Diagnostica Transport Medium is used for most bacteria incl. Neisseria species and anaerobic bacteria. The transport medium ensures viability and allows only limited growth. Isolation of pathogens in mixed cultures is therefore possible. SSI Diagnostica Transport Medium is delivered in 20-piece packs. Transport sleeves must be ordered separately.

SSI Diagnostica transport media are stored in a cool place at 2-8ºC. The expiry date is indicated on the glass. 

Note: Oxidation of the substrate will be shown by blue staining. If more than the top 2/3 of the substrate is blue, it cannot be used.
