Mueller-Hinton Agar is a medium very rich in nutrients that was originally recommended for the isolation and development of gonococci and meningococci. Mueller Hinton Agar is made up of Beef Extract and Acid Hydrolysate of Casein, providing nitrogen, vitamins, carbon, and amino acids. For all organisms, the colony numbers were similar on all agars. Mueller Hinton II Broth with 2% Sodium Chloride (NaCl) is for testing methicillin-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).1 Summary and Explanation The development of laboratory tests to determine the activity of antimicrobial agents has paralleled the development of these agents. 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 Agar media contains Beef Extract, Acid Hydrolysate of Casein, Starch and Agar. Agar is the solidifying agent. Streptococci.
