TITLE: STERILITY AND FERTILITY TESTING OF BROTHS
Cell culture media is tested before use for the presence of microbial contamination. This is carried out by inoculating broths which are able to support the growth of a wide range of microbes. It is important to test each batch of broths to ensure its ability to support microbial growth.
If broths have passed tests, label as batch passed. If broths fail test, discard batch and order new batch(s) immediately and repeat test.
