  • Rapid preparation – Just add deionized water to the pre-measured, sterile medium, massage the bag to mix and your enrichment media is ready to use. It’s that simple!
  • Cost effective – Less time in labor for media preparation and less shipping costs.
  • Space saving – The enrichment mediums are in a compact powder format and packaged in a flat bag to reduce storage requirements.
