Casamino Acids (Acid Hydrolysate of Casein (Purified Grade). is an excellent source of free amino acids and short peptide fragments, which are required by microorganisms for growth. Casein is a rich source of amino nitrogen. Treatment with hydrochloric acid hydrolyzes the protein into primarily free amino acids with some short peptide fragments. Tryptophan and vitamins present in the casein are destroyed by the acid hydrolysis. The salt content of this peptone is very high at approximately 36%. While this peptone is used in a number of microbiological media formulations, its main usage is in Mueller Hinton Agar.
Acid Hydrolysate of Casein, Technical Grade It is used in dehydrated media & fermentation industries, as it contains the broad spectrum amino acids required for the microbial growth in appropriate concentration. Free flowing, slightly hygroscopic; spray dried powder derived from high quality casein. It is a pale yellow to light brown colored soluble powder.
Pancreatic Digest of Casein, It is a free flowing, slightly hygroscopic; spray dried, light yellow colored powder derived from high quality Casein. 2% solution in water is clear. Nitrogen: NLT 12.00% w/w , Alpha Amino Nitrogen : 3.50 to 4.50% w/w. Ash: NMT 8.00% w/w.
Pancreatic Digest of Casein is enzymatically hydrolyzed casein that provides a complex nitrogen source in microbiological culture media. Casein is a rich source of amino acid nitrogen. This product is used to support the growth of fastidious micro-organisms, and has high tryptophan content.
Pancreatic Digest of Gelatin is free flowing, slightly hygroscopic, sprays dried powder derived from high quality gelatin. Light yellow colored powder. 2% solution in water is clear. Pancreatic Digest of Gelatin is deficient in carbohydrates and is used for preparing microbiological culture media for fermentation studies. It is also used alone to support the growth of non-fastidious microorganisms.
