Phenylethyl Alcohol Blood Agar (PEA)

Phenylethyl Alcohol Blood Agar (PEA) is an enriched selective medium for the isolation of obligately anaerobic bacteria from clinical specimens. Phenylethyl Alcohol Blood Agar medium contains phenylethyl alcohol to inhibit the growth of gram-negative, facultatively-anaerobic bacteria and prevent swarming. This medium is based on the Brucella Agar forumulation and will support the growth of most obligate anaerobic bacteria, both gram positive and gram negative. The Phenylethyl Alcohol Blood Agar medium is especially useful in selective isolation of anaerobes from mixed populations that contain rapidly growing gram-negative bacteria such as Proteus species. This medium is prepared, stored and dispensed under oxygen-free conditions to prevent the formation of oxidized products prior to use.
