244020 500 g Difco™ 2×YT Medium (Yeast Extract Tryptone)
Formulation designed for growth and propagation of E. coli
infected with the single strand fiamentous bacteriophage M13.
240110 500 g Difco™ LB Agar (Lennox)
A nutritionally rich media developed by Lennox for the growth
and maintenance of pure cultures of recombinant strains of E.
coli. These strains are generally derived from E. coli K12, which
are defiient in B vitamin production. This strain of E. coli has
been further modifid through specifi mutation to create an
auxotrophic strain that is not capable of growth on nutritionally
defiient media. LB Agar, Lennox provides all the nutritional
requirements of these organisms. LB Agar, Lennox contains half
the sodium chloride level of the Miller formulation of LB Agar. This
allows the researcher to select the optimal salt concentration for a
specifi strain.
244520 500 g Difco™ LB Agar (Miller)
244510 2 kg LB (Luria-Bertani) Agar, Miller is used for maintaining and
propagating Escherichia coli in molecular microbiology procedures.
LB Agar, Miller is based on LB Medium as described by Miller for
the growth and maintenance of E. coli strains used in molecular
microbiology procedures. These are nutritionally rich media
designed for growth of pure cultures of recombinant strains. E.
coli grows more rapidly because they provide the cells with amino
acids, nucleotide precursors, vitamins and other metabolites that
the microorganism would otherwise have to synthesise.

240230 500 g Difco™ LB Broth (Lennox)
240210 2 kg LB Broth, Lennox contains ten times the sodium chloride level
of Luria Broth Base, Miller and one half of that found in LB
Broth, Miller. This allows the researcher to select the optimal salt
concentration for a specifi strain. If desired, the medium may be
aseptically supplemented with
glucose to prepare the complete medium described by Lennox.
244620 500 g Difco™ LB Broth (Miller)
244610 2 kg LB (Luria-Bertani) Broth, Miller is used for maintaining and
propagating Escherichia coli in molecular microbiology procedures.
241420 500 g Difco™ Luria Broth Base (Miller)
Luria Broth Base, Miller is used for maintaining and propagating
Escherichia coli in molecular microbiology procedures with or
without added glucose.
248510 500 g Difco™ M9 Minimal Salts (5×)
Used in preparing M9 Minimal Medium which is used for
cultivating recombinant strains of Escherichia coli. M9 Minimal
Salts, 5× is a 5× concentrate that is diluted to a 1× concentration
and supplemented with an appropriate carbon and energy
source, such as dextrose, to provide a minimal, chemically defied
medium. The medium will support the growth of “wild-type”
strains of E. coli. M9 Minimal Salts is useful for maintaining
positive selection pressure on plasmids coding for the ability to
produce essential substances such as amino acids or vitamins. M9
Minimal Medium is also used to maintain stocks of F´-containing
bacteria for use with M13. The medium can be supplemented with
specifi amino acids or other metabolites, allowing for selection of
specifi auxotrophs.
