BD BBL™ prepared tubed media
BD BBL™ prepared tubed media enables the isolation and identification of microorganisms. Tubed media are ideal for cultures requiring prolonged incubation, since many can be incubated with tightly closed caps to prevent dehydration and subsequent inhibition of growth. Offering a wide variety of sizes, we can manufacture your individual culture medium in the size your application demands.
Eliminated contamination risk
Special long-necked, rubber-lined screw caps eliminate danger of contamination.
Moisture loss prevention
Tubes are borosilicate glass with black screw caps securely fitted to prevent loss of moisture.
Larger-sized tubes with wider diameters permit easy inoculation and media handling.
Most tubes contain a special resilient rubber liner, which resists displacement even during autoclaving.
"A" tube size: 19.5 mm x 145 mm
The "A" tube contains solid media (e.g., BD Trypticase™ soy agar), with a media quantity equivalent to one plate (i.e., approximately 20 mL). This tube is also designed as a pour tube.
"K" tube size: 16.5 mm x 102 mm
The "K" tube provides the convenience of a "D" tube while saving vertical shelf space. Unless otherwise noted, slants contain approximately 4 to 5 mL, slants with butts of approximately 6 mL and broths of approximately 5 to 8 mL, depending on the formulation.
Vials for amies size: 19 mm x 53 mm
Amies transport media are filled to the cap.
