Robertson’s Cooked Meat Medium

  • The Medium provides a favorable environment for the growth of anaerobes since the muscle protein in the heart tissue granules is a source of amino acids and other nutrients. The muscle tissue also provides reducing substances, particularly glutathione. The sulfhydryl groups, which exert the reducing effect, are more available in denatured protein; therefore, the meat particles are cooked for use in the medium.
  • Growth is indicated by turbidity and, with some organisms, by the presence of gas bubbles in the medium. Disintegration and blackening of the meat particles indicates proteolysis.
