Biosate Peptone

Intended Use

Biosate Peptone is used as a component in microbiological culture media or in fermentation applications.

Summary and Explanation

Biosate Peptone is a mixed hydrolysate comprised of casein and yeast extract at a ratio of 65:35. The synergistic effect of two or more types of hydrolysates is well documented and has
been utilized for decades in culture media formulation. The combination of pancreatic digest of casein and yeast extract provides nutritional benefits that are not provided by the
components alone. It has been reported that the combined use of these two peptones has shown improved toxin production in clostridia.1,2 Additionally, the combination of pancreatic
digest of casein and yeast extract has been used successfully as components in media which supported the hatching and culture of Giardia spp. from cysts and the first-time culturing of
a nematode without the need of its symbiotic bacteria.3,4

Principles of the Procedure

Biosate Peptone provides nitrogen, amino acids and vitamins in microbiological culture media. In addition, the yeast extract component of the product provides proteins, carbohydrates
and some micronutrients.
