Minerals Modified Glutamate Agar is used as a resuscitation medium for the enumeration of β-glucuronidase-positive Escherichia coli, and is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.
MMGA is a highly defined medium recommended in ISO 16649-1:2018, containing various amino acids, vitamins and salts formulated to promote the recovery of stressed or damaged organisms. According to ISO 16649-1 organisms are inoculated onto a cellulose membrane overlaid on MMGA for a resuscitation stage, followed by transfer of the membrane onto Tryptone Bile Glucuronide Agar (TBX) for isolation and counting. This medium conforms to the formulation requirements of ISO 16649-1:2018.
