VP HiVeg™ Medium is used for isolation of Vibrio parahaemolyticus. Sucrose is added as a fermentable sugar.Bromothymol blue and thymol blue are the pH indicators.The alkaline pH of the medium and higher concentration of sodium chloride improves the recovery of Vibrio parahaemolyticus. Sucrose fermenting organisms like V. cholerae and V. alginolyticus produces yellow coloured colonies.Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a sucrose non-fermenting organism and produces blue-green colonies. This medium is prepared by replacing animal peptones with vegetable defined peptones to avoid BSE/TSE/GMO risk.
