The addition of starch to Mueller Hinton Agar ensures that toxic factors found during growth will be absorbed, and its presence is often essential to establish growth from very small inocula. Mueller Hinton Media contains Beef Extract, Acid Hydrolysate of Casein, Starch and Agar. The starch absorbs toxins released by the bacteria. Starch hydrolysis yields dextrose, which serves as a source of energy. 0000004136 00000 n Mueller Hinton Agar medium is non-selective and non-differential. 0000006751 00000 n Mueller-Hinton agar: ( mū'lĕr hin'tŏn ), medium containing beef infusion, peptone, and starch used primarily for the disk-agar diffusion method for antimicrobial susceptibility testing.

A suitable medium is essential for testing the susceptibility of microorganisms to sulfonamides and trimethoprim. was assessed against that of Etest using RPMI agar with 2% glucose (RPG). Main Difference – Nutrient Agar vs Nutrient Broth. (9) Additionally, this media has been used in standardized antimicrobial disk susceptibility testing, as described by Bauer, Kirby, et al. Agar is added to the nutrient agar in order to solidify the medium. Mueller Hinton Agar is recommended for antimicrobial disc diffusion susceptibility testing of common, rapidly growing bacteria by the Bauer-Kirby method,1-3 as standardized by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI).4 Mueller Hinton Agar with 5% Sheep Blood is recommended for antimicrobial disc diffusion susceptibility testing of Strep- The exceptions are Haemophilus influenzae isolates, which require HTM media, and N. gonorrhoeae, which requires GC … The analyses indicated that the performance of members of the P. aeruginosa populations in each hospital closely followed the performance of the quality control strain, P. aeruginosa ATCC 27853, when tested on each lot of Mueller-Hinton medium. During World War II, Hinton also worked as a lab technician in Arizona. The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute, which establishes the best international laboratory standards, adopted the Kirby-Bauer technique using Mueller-Hinton agar as the gold standard for antibiotic testing. Beef Extract and Acid Hydrolysate of Casein provide nitrogen, vitamins, carbon, amino acids, sulphur and other essential nutrients. To enhance the growth of fastidious organisms, Mueller Hinton Agar was supplemented with hemoglobin and a chemically defined supplement (GCHI Enrichment). Starch is added to absorb any toxic metabolites produced. The major use of Mueller-Hinton Agar is for Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (AST). 0000009158 00000 n adopted the use of Mueller Hinton for antimicrobial susceptibility testing.1,2 They emphasized the importance of using standardized methods to increase the predictive value of single disk concentration procedures. 0000003231 00000 n Mueller Hinton Agar was originally developed because clinical microbiology laboratories in the early 1960s were using a wide variety of procedures for determining the susceptibility of bacteria to antibiotic, and chemotherapeutic agents, Bauer, Kirby and others developed a standardized procedure in which Mueller Hinton Agar was selected as the test medium.
