Deoxycholate Agar is used for the isolation and differentiation of Gram-negative enteric bacilli in a laboratory setting. Deoxycholate Agar is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.
Deoxycholate Agar was described first by Leifson for isolation of intestinal pathogens and the enumeration of intestinal pathogens in milk and water. Deoxycholate Agar was an improvement over other media because of the chemicals, citrates and sodium deoxycholate worked well as inhibitors. This medium is used to screen for Salmonella spp. and Shigella spp.
