Peptone Water is used for the cultivation of non-fastidious microorganisms, indole testing, and as a basal medium for carbohydrate fermentation studies in a laboratory setting. Peptone Water is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.
Peptone Water is a minimal growth medium. The formulation of Peptone Water permits cultivation of non-fastidious organisms. This non-selective medium has been used as a basal medium for biochemical tests such as carbohydrate fermentation patterns and production of indole. A 1% final carbohydrate concentration with phenol red (0.018 g/L) indicator and a Durham tube can be used for fermentation studies.
