The 3M™ Enrichment Pouch with 225 mL Buffered Peptone Water Broth is a
heavyweight, puncture-resistant pouch, ideal for many sample preparation and
Designed to meet stringent laboratory testing needs, this pouch has the
strength needed to endure sample preparation and handling processes.
Pre-measured with 225 mL of enrichment broth, the pouch is ready to use with no
mixing required. Just add the sample, homogenize to mix, then place directly
into the incubator. The broth and pouch are decontaminated through gamma
irradiation to maintain organism viability and long shelf life. The flat bottom
allows the pouch to stand on its own and heavy gage wire closure holds the pouch
open, allowing the technician to work with both hands. Once the desired sample
has been added, the open top is folded over itself and the wire tie bent over
the fold to seal. The multi-layer pouch is strong enough to use with a paddle
blender to effectively mix the sample with the enrichment solution. This product
is made in the USA with globally sourced materials and is ISO 9001:2008
certified for quality assurance. It is intended for lab use only.
Buffered Peptone Water Broth is used as a diluent or for non selective
enrichment of microorganisms such as Salmonella species
or E. coli from foods and environmental samples prior
to selective enrichment and isolation. Microorganisms that may be present in a
food product can be sub-lethally injured by food processing techniques and may
not be recovered by direct selection techniques. Buffered Peptone Water Broth
promotes the recovery of those microorganisms that may be injured.
