Clostridium perfringens


Culture Medium: Clostridium perfringens Selective Medium

Clostridium perfringens is most commonly associated with food poisoning, and is also associated with gas gangrene. Identified as being one of the most common bacterial causes of food poisoning, food producers are typically required to ensure that products are free of this hardy, spore-forming organism.

The Speedy Breedy® Clostridium perfringens Selective culture vessel contains a growth medium purposefully designed to create anaerobic test conditions and encourage recovery of and selective growth and detection of C. perfringens (even with low numbers of bacteria present in a sample).

Used with Speedy Breedy®, the Clostridium perfringens Selective culture vessel provides a rapid, sensitive screening method for assessing samples for the presence of C. perfringens.
