TITLE :- MEDIA PREPARATION FOR ROUTINE MICROBIOLOGICAL TESTING
OBJECTIVE :- Nutreint media which are generally prepared fresh are obtained in the form of ehydrated powder and constitute the specific composition as per the microorganism’s need for their growth. Generally used media are dehydrated media which can be reconstituted as per the direction of use by the manufacturer of these dehydrated medias.
UNIT OF RESPONSIBILITY :- Q.A Executive , Trained Q.A Assistants.
IMPORTANT POINTS / NOTE / PRECAUTIONS:
1. During preparation of the media see that no spillage takes place while heating onhot plate.
2. The dehydrated media being highly hygroscopic should not be exposed for more time during weighing.
3. Carefully read the instructions given on the label, direction and use. Also note the USE BEFORE ‘ date and batch No.
a) Receipt of media from the supplier
After the receipt of media from the supplier the batch No. and the expiry of the manufacturer is entered into the media reciept register along with the challan Noand the date of reciept. This batch no. and the expiry date along with the date of
reciept is reflected in the media preparation record against each media prepared.
1) For rehydration, use clean, undamaged glassware and distilled water for the preparation of these media.
2) Place appropriately weighed amount of the medium in a clean dry flask, 2-3 times larger than the final volume of the prepared medium. Add part of the required amount of the distilled water and swirl to dissolve.
3) Gradually add the remaining water from the side of the container.
4) For completely dissolving heat on the hot plate, taking care to avoid excessive heating scorching of the medium.
5) The pH should be adjusted to the value specified and is corrected by adding diluted HCl or sodium hydroxide.
6) Dispense completely dissolved medium as desired and sterilize as directed on the label.Generally sterilization is done at 1210C & 15 lbs pressure for 20 minutes using an autoclave.There are certain media which are not to be autoclaved.
7) The reconstitution and the sterilisation requirement of the media is tabulated in the annexure 1, 2, & 3
8) The media after preparation is used within 96 hours of after preparation.
9) If not used immediately should be stored at temp of 8- 15 deg C.and if not used within 96 hours should be destroyed.
OTHER RELEVANT DETAILS :-
The media after use is destroyed as mentioned in the SOP for disposal of micro biological waste. sop number
