Storage of Growth Media

Storage of Growth Media
14/07/2018

Issues affecting the storage of growth media Back in December 2017, we published a blog, taken from our guide “The pharmaceutical industry’s guide to prepared culture media” specifically about the factors to consider when storing growth media. One of the most frequent questions I am asked by customers looking for technical help are factors that affect growth media, usually accompanied by a scenario where they are worried the performance of the media is affected by a specific or number of factors. I am going to take this opportunity to address the most frequently asked questions in this area.

The shelf life of Redipor® prepared media is validated in ambient conditions. We describe ambient as 10-25°C. Hopefully the benefit is obvious, media that can be stored at room temperature does not require expensive refrigeration options and will hopefully save you plenty of storage space. You can have confidence on the performance of the media until the final day of shelf life, if stored correctly.

Our focus on ambient storage means we are slightly restricted on what media we can make. We currently do not make certain types of microbiological media, such as chromogenic agars; media containing unstable antibiotics and some blood-based agars that require refrigeration to prevent deterioration. Please contact us to check what we can make.
