Beef Extract Powder is prepared and standardised for use in microbiological culture media, where it is generally used to replace infusion of meat. Culture media containing Beef Extract Powder are recommended for use in bacteriological examination of water, milk, and other materials, where a uniform composition of media is important. Beef Extract Powder is relied upon for biochemical studies, particularly fermentation reactions because of its independence from fermentable substances. Several media containing Beef Extract Powder are recommended in standard methods for multiple application.
