Excerpt
INTRODUCTION It is a general experience that Neisseria gonorrhoeae does not grow on simpler media such as plain broth-agar plates. This fastidiousness is ascribed partly to toxic substances present in the agar and partly to the need for special growth factors. Several attempts have been made to analyse the growth requirements of N. gonorrhoeae, and synthetic media have also been described (Welton & Scherp, 1944; Welton et al., 1944; Gould et al., 1944; Hill, 1948; Hill et al., 1948). These complex media do not support the growth of all strains of N. go~zorrlzoeae on primary isolation from pathological material. A rich , non-toxic medium would be desirable; usually, this condition is achieved by adding, to a broth-agar base, heated blood (or haemoglobin) and fresh serum (or plasma) or other biological material, for example ascitic or hydrocele fluid.
