TAT Broth is used for the detection of microorganisms in cosmetics and topical drugs in a laboratory setting. TAT Broth is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.
TAT Broth is prepared for use in the examination of cosmetics and topical drugs. TAT Broth, with the addition of Polysorbate 20, is recommended for sterility testing of viscous materials, including salves or ointments. It is especially adapted for sterility testing of cosmetics. Cosmetic products are subject to contamination during manufacturing and use by consumers. Preservatives are used in aqueous products to make them self-sterilizing for vegetative bacteria, yeast, and molds.
TAT (Tryptone-Azolectin-Tween) Broth is also referred to as Fluid Casein Digest-Soy Lecithin Polysorbate 20 Medium.
