Discover Hispanagar's wide range of bacteriological agars

Bacteriological agar is used as a gelling agent in the preparation of culture media. Hispanagar has a wide range of bacteriological agars whose main advantage is the absence of inhibitors that can mask the optimal development of microorganisms. In addition, our agars have other properties such as transparency, a large hysteresis and batch-to-batch reproducibility. 

In today's post we will talk about the European Bacteriological Agar. It is one of the most widely used bacteriological agars in culture media preparation and other routine microbiology applications.    

European Bacteriological Agar has a high gel strength of 800-1100 g/cm2 and is used in 1.0 to 2.0 % concentrations. 

Our European Bacteriological agar undergoes stringent controls that determine its physical-chemical parameters and guarantee the absence of hemolytic substances and inhibitors. All batches are rigorously controlled to verify their biological behavior against various cultures of known bacteria, as well as to ensure proper growth characteristics.
