Terrific Broth (Non animal origin) is as Terrific Broth (Cat. 1246) but changing the animal origin raw materials to vegetal origin ones. It is a medium which supports a high cell density and, in the case is formulated for optimum growth of E.coli, maintains growth in the logarithmic phase for a long time. As a result it yields a greater number of recombinant proteins and plasmic DNA. In some circumstances it substitutes LB Broth (Lennox) (Cat. 1231) used in genetic studies. Vegetable origin peptone provide nitrogen, vitamins, minerals and aminoacids essential for growth. Yeast extract is source of vitamins, particularly the B-group. Potassium phosphates act as a buffer system to prevent cell death.
