Handbook of Microbiological Media Fourth Edition By Ronald M. Atlas includes the formulations and descriptions of 7,080 media used for cultivating microorganisms more than in the previous edition. These include both classic and modern media used for the identification, cultivation, and maintenance of diverse bacteria, archaea, and fungi. Some of these microbiological media are produced by major suppliers of dehydrated media including Oxoid, HiMedia, and BD Diagnostics (Difco, BBL, and GIBCO). These include all the media normally used in the clinical microbiology diagnostic laboratory and for the routine examination of food and water. Other media described in the fourth edition of the Handbook of Microbiological Media are used to cultivate specific strains of bacteria, archaea, fungi, and protists, including many anaerobes and extremophiles.

Handbook of Microbiological Media Fourth Edition By Ronald M. Atlas includes the media needed to cultivate the numerous microorganisms currently available from the world’s global bioresource centers (BRCs). The breadth of culture media in this comprehensive resource is enormous and has greatly expanded in recent years with the exploration of extreme habitats and the use of molecular methods to identify new lineages of bacteria and archaea. The media also represent significant advances in the ability to use chromogenic substrates to identify specific species and strains of bacteria, e.g., E. coli O157 and methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). These media are extremely useful for clinical diagnostics and for the protection of the food supply from pathogenic microorganisms. Additionally many culture media are now available that are free of animal components. Plant based media eliminate possible contamination with prions which is important for production of vaccines and pharmaceuticals. The media described in the Handbook of Microbiological Media are organized alphabetically. Synonyms for media are listed. The description of each medium includes its name(s), composition, instructions for preparation, commercial sources, safety cautions where needed, and uses.

Media often have numerous names. For the most part the fourth edition of the Handbook of Microbiological Media retains the original names assigned in the literature. In some cases media with identical compositions produced by different companies have different names. For example, Trypticase™ Soy Agar produced as a BBL product of BD Diagnostic Systems, Tryptone Soy Agar produced by Oxoid Unipath, and Tryptic Soy Agar produced as a Difco product of BD Diagnostic Systems have identical compositions. Many media also are known by acronyms. TSA, for example, is the common acronym for Trypticase™ Soy Agar. The fourth edition of the Handbook of Microbiological Media gives the various synonymous names and directs the reader to see the entry where the information about that medium is given. In cases where modifications to a medium yield a new medium, such media generally are listed with the original medium name, followed by the term modified for example, TSA, Modified, rather than Modified TSA. Media that do not have formal names are listed according to the organism grown on that medium for example, Bacillus stearothermophilus Broth.
