BBL Diagnostic Reagent and Stain Droppers are used as a solution to the problem of perishable identification reagents and stains. Featuring reagents that are hermetically sealed in an ampule to protect from chemical instability, the droppers provide shelf-life ranging from one to three years, with no refrigeration.
Offered are several reagents that differ in their biochemical nature and help identify enzymatic reactions and processes:
Indole Reagent may be used for tube or extraction procedures or with a variety of biochemical kits requiring Kovacs' or Ehrlich's reagents. Indole is commonly used as an aid in determining tryptophanase enzyme systems.
Oxidase Reagent droppers help identify organisms which produce oxidase enzyme called indophenol oxidase. It oxidizes a redox dye (present in the reagent) which results in a color change of yellow to dark
A Voges-Proskauer test is part of a series of IMViC tests. The letters stand for Indole, Methyl Red, Voges-Proskauer, and Citrate. They are used primarily to distinguish between the coliforms, but may be used for other organisms in the Enterobacteriaceae family, and to detect acetylmethylcarbinol.
Ferric Chloride that is used to differentiate organisms capable of phenylalanine deamination.
Nitrate A and B help locate bacteria that have the ability to reduce nitrate to nitrite or free nitrogen gas. The Nitrate A and B Reagents, when added in equal parts, indicate the presence of a catabolic end product or the absence of nitrate in the medium
All droppers contain a one-day supply of reagent or stain—reducing waste and inconvenience associated with bulk reagents. Long shelf-life and no refrigeration required.
Please be aware that there may be additional charges for shipment of hazardous materials.
Material Safety Data Sheets are easily obtainable. If a Material Safety Data Sheet was not provided with your purchase, or you require additional copies, please download a PDF from the "DOCUMENTATION" tab.
