Dehydrated Culture Media


Experience, Know-How and Choice
from Merck Millipore

When it comes to developing innovative culture media for microbiological applications, Merck Millipore clearly sets the standard with its over 120 years of cumulative expertise. As a worldwide leader in this field, we offer state-of-the-art, turnkey solutions in a comprehensive approach to meet the needs of customers in the food and beverages industries. Our portfolio of dehydrated culture media (DCM) spans more than 300 formulations, many of which were purpose-developed for culturing a narrow range of micro-organisms or individual species, and we are constantly expanding this range. But our commitment to customers doesn’t end with providing outstanding variety and unsurpassed quality: We also cater for any quantities: No requirement is too large or too small for us to manage.

Safe, standardized and comprehensive solutions are the key building blocks of Merck Millipore’s philosophy. This set of features distinguishes our product range from that of other suppliers and demonstrates our performance at its best. The outstanding reliability of our products and services is the result of our meticulous quality control.

Moreover, we not only offer traditional culture media, but also rapid enrichment media – another step forward in our mission to constantly expand our range of innovations in industrial microbiology.

The Advantages of Merck Millipore’s Granulated Culture Media over Powdered Media

Merck Millipore’s traditional dehydrated culture media are based on a unique granulation technology which guarantees that our products provide maximum convenience and safety, while meeting the highest industry performance standards as laid out in ISO 11133. Media granulation significantly reduces the formation of dust, thereby minimizing not only the working environment contamination: this property vastly limits the spread of hazardous media components and other substances which are not commonly regarded as hazardous but may lead to allergic reactions if they are inhaled by staff.

The animal components we use for our media (except some derived from milk) are exclusively sourced from TSE/BSE-free countries and are in accordance with the highest safety standards. We select only premium raw materials to guarantee high recovery and growth rates, which are essential for subsequent rapid testing. Merck Millipore’s granulated culture media possess excellent wettability, solubility and free-flowing properties, making them much easier to use than traditional powdered media. Granulated culture media are also more homogenous, thereby minimizing the separation of components and clumping even under warm or humid conditions and prolonging the shelf life of products to up to five years. The granulation process allows many supplements to be included, which eliminates the need to purchase and add these yourself.

Your Benefits
  • Safer: Minimizes airborne toxins and allergens, allergic responses and workplace contamination
  • Accurate: Prevents component separation and clumping even under humid or warm conditions
  • Fast: Dissolves rapidly in water
  • Easier: Superior flow and non-sticking properties for easier handling
  • Reliable: Homogenous distribution of ingredients assures high reproducibility even with small media quantities

Rapid and Easy STEC and E. coli O157 Testing with Rapidcult™ E. coli Enrichment Broth

Time is crucial for sensitive foods. Quality is critical to protect your brand. But time and quality may conflict when testing for contamination in meat and vegetable production. It‘s time-consuming and slows your workflow, meaning the food is in quarantine and cannot be used.

Rapidcult™ E. coli enrichment broth is a medium for rapid enrichment of pathogenic Escherichia coli – usually in just one easy step. It is suitable for all Shiga-toxin (verotoxin) producing E. coli (STEC) and E. coli O157 from food samples, especially ground beef and beef trim. Speeding up enrichment to 8-12 hours, it fits seamlessly into your workflow, no matter which detection method you use: classical culturing, immunological lateral flow or real-time PCR.

Rely on Rapidcult™ E. coli
  • Results within 8-12 hours, allowing food products to be released earlier from quarantine
  • Simplified procedure in comparison to ISO workflow
  • Validation consistent with USDA-FSIS for rapid detection from ground beef and beef trim when used in combination with Singlepath® E. coli O157 lateral flow test
  • Perfect match with Duopath® STEC lateral flow test for rapid detection of all Shiga-toxin producing E. coli
