Detailed Description
Specifications

Use: Broth medium intended for the cultivation and serological typing of group A hemolytic streptococci.

Description: Todd-Hewitt Broth is formulated according to Updyke and Nickels modification of the medium originally described by Todd-Hewitt. Studies comparing various commercial broth formulas, dehydrated Todd-Hewift Broth, and broth prepared from fresh infusion of beef heart showed that the dehydrated Todd-Hewitt Broth performed equally to the fresh infusion and superior to the other commercially prepared products. Todd-Hewift Broth was utilized by Moody et al. in fluorescent procedures for identifying Group A streptococci in throat cultures. Todd-Hewift Broth is composed of beef heart infusion, yeast extract and casein which are excellent nutritional components. The formation of proteinase is prevented allowing the production of type specific M protein. Dextrose is a source of carbon and energy and is fermented by the streptococci. The acid byproducts of the fermentation are neutralized by the presence of sodium carbonate and sodium phosphate.
