Agar medium

1,5% agar medium is the solid medium for in vitro use for the identification of somatic antigens of Salmonella in slide agglutination tests. It is a ready-to-use medium for multiplication of bacterial culture of Salmonella, which allows growth of smooth colonies of bacteria. The composition of the medium allows for proper development of somatic antigens, what enables a preliminary serological identification of Salmonella strains.
