Thioglycollate Broth (THIO) is an enriched liquid medium for the growth of microaerophilic and anaerobic bacteria, including fastidious organisms, isolated from clinical specimens. Thioglycollate Broth is an excellent growth medium for most sporeforming and non-sporeforming anaerobes. Thioglycollate Broth basal medium is supplemented with hemin, vitamin K1, and small amount of agar is added to slow the diffusion of oxygen within the media. A marble chip (calcium carbonate) is added to the medium to provide additional pH buffering capacity and a constant supply of carbon. This medium is prepared, dispensed and packaged under oxygen-free conditions to prevent the formation of oxidized products prior to use.
