Microbiological Quality Control
Selectrol® discs are first generation standard micro-organisms that are manufactured under license from Public Health England.
Selectrol® is a fully traceable and cost effective range of first generation micro-organisms which have predictable biochemical reactions, making it ideal for a variety of quality control and testing applications.
- Quality control of culture media, staining reactions, biochemical profiling.
- Determination of antibiotic concentrations in blood, serum or CSF samples.
- Antibiotic susceptibility testing controls, whether by disc diffusion or serial dilution.
Selectrol® strains are presented as water-soluble freeze-dried discs with most strains being available in packs of 10 or 25 discs. Selectrol® discs are manufactured exclusively from NCTC® (National Collection of Type Cultures) and NCPF® (National Collection of Pathogenic Fungi) and are guaranteed first generation derivatives from the source strain. Selectrol® is versatile, and can be inoculated directly onto solid media or dissolved in an appropriate broth.
