Cary Blair. Sterile
Cary Blair is another modification of Stuart media.
The glycerophosphate has been substituted by inorganic phosphate since glycerophosphate is a metabolite for some bacteria, so they could grow and disgrise the pathogens amount.
The methylene blue has also been removed and the pH increased to 8.4. This is a media originally developed for faecal samples but is also used successfully for anaerobic transport, such as:
Campylobacter Spp., etc.
Swabs are sterilised by radiation.
Dimensions of the peel-pack: 38 x 210 mm.
Expiry date: 30 months from sterilisation date.
