Meet the challenge

Bioburden testing of raw materials, water and end products has become a challenge for quality control. QC laboratories have to follow stringent company guidelines driven by strict regulations (European, United States, and Japanese pharmacopeias) and must deliver reliable and consistent results, while constantly optimizing their laboratory workflows.

To support your microbiological examinations, Merck provides ready-to-use buffers and enrichment media that are recommended for the detection of aerobic microorganisms. They are prepared according to the corresponding, harmonized methods of the European, US and Japanese Pharmacopeias.

Enrichment media such as Mossel Broth, MacConkey Broth, Tryptic Soy Broth and Sabouraud Dextrose Broth as well as NaCl-Peptone Buffers/Phosphate Buffers are available in a selection of bottles and tubes.
