Alternative Culture Media for Cultivation of Bacteria

Kutcharlapati Sunita Raju

Microorganisms can be grown using artificial media. Nutrient agar is a common medium used to grow bacteria in laboratories. This study was carried out to find an alternate and cheap media to cultivate bacteria. The stock obtained by soaking pulses was used as an alternate to nutrient broth. The finely ground powder of the pulses along with agar served as an alternate to nutrient agar for the cultivation of bacteria. Both the formulated media supported the growth of test organisms as the ingredients are rich in protein and carbohydrate, essential for the growth of any organism.
