Acidicase Peptone is used as a nutritional supplement in vitamin assay, susceptibility testing and other laboratory media and microbial fermentation where the high salt content will not interfere.
Acidicase Peptone is a hydrochloric acid hydrolysate of casein. The manufacturing process produces a casein hydrolysate that has a high salt content of approximately 37% and nitrogen content of approximately 8%. The hydrolysis of the casein, a milk protein rich in amino acid nitrogen, is carried out until all the nitrogen is converted to amino acids or other compounds of relative simplicity. It is deficient in cystine, because casein contains little cystine, and in tryptophan, which is destroyed by the acid treatment.
Acidicase Peptone are acid hydrolyzed casein. Casein is milk protein and a rich source of amino acid nitrogen. Bacto Casamino Acids, Bacto Casamino Acids, Technical, Casamino Acids, Vitamin Assay and Acidicase Peptone provide nitrogen, vitamins, carbon and amino acids in microbiological culture media. Although Bacto Casamino Acids, Bacto Casamino Acids, Technical, Casamino Acids, Vitamin Assay and Acidicase Peptone are added to media primarily because of their organic nitrogen and growth factor components, their inorganic components also play a vital role.17
