Product number: NCM0248

Sodium Desoxycholate is a bacterial growth inhibitor and is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.

Sodium Desoxycholate is a specific bile acid, derived from deconjugated bile salts. Leifson showed that Desoxycholic acid had the most inhibitory effect on bacterial growth, and that this could be enhanced by the removal of magnesium ions by chelating with sodium citrate. These components comprise the selective agents in DCA, DCA (Hynes) and DCLS.
