Rogosa SL Agar and Broth

Intended Use

Rogosa SL Agar and Rogosa SL Broth are used for cultivating oral, vaginal and fecal lactobacilli.

Summary and Explanation

Rogosa SL Agar and Broth, also known as RMW Agar/Broth, are a modification of media described by Rogosa, Mitchell and Wiseman.1,2 These media are used for isolation, enumeration and identification of lactobacilli in oral bacteriology, feces, vaginal specimens and foodstuffs.3,4 The low pH and high acetate concentrations effectively suppress other bacterial flora allowing lactobacilli to flourish.

Principles of the Procedure

Peptone provides carbon and nitrogen. Yeast extract is a source of trace elements, vitamins and amino acids. Dextrose, arabinose and saccharose are carbohydrate sources that
provide carbon. Sodium acetate and ammonium citrate inhibit streptococci, molds and other oral microbial flora and restrict swarming. Monopotassium phosphate provides buffering capability. Magnesium sulfate, manganese sulfate and ferrous sulfate are sources of inorganic ions. Polysorbate 80 acts as a surfactant. Agar is the solidifying agent.

Directions for Preparation from Dehydrated Product

1. Suspend the powder in 1 L of purified water:
    Difco™ Rogosa SL Agar – 75 g;
    Difco™ Rogosa SL Broth – 59.7 g. Mix thoroughly.

5. Test samples of the finished product for performance using stable, typical control cultures.

Procedure

See appropriate references for specific procedures.

Expected Results

Refer to appropriate references and procedures for results.

Limitation of the Procedure

The salt in the formulation makes the media unsuitable for isolation of dairy lactobacilli; e.g., L. lactis, L. bulgaricus and L. helveticus.4
