​Gellan Gum Applied in Culture Medium

Low Acyl Gellan Gum can be used as an alternative to agar for microbiological media, and as a bacterial growth media. It is also an ideal medium for plant tissue cultivation. It is particularly useful for the culture of thermophilic microorganisms, as the gels are thermostable and can withstand prolonged incubations at high temperatures.

Gellan Gum Applied in Culture Medium


Low Acyl Gellan Gum can be used as an alternative to agar for microbiological media, and as a bacterial growth media. It is also an ideal medium for plant tissue cultivation. It is particularly useful for the culture of thermophilic microorganisms, as the gels are thermostable and can withstand prolonged incubations at high temperatures.


In addition, acceptable gel strengths can be obtained using Low Acyl Gellan Gum at a lower level than agar, and spreader colonies do not become too large. In these microbiological media applications, the high purity of Low Acyl Gellan Gum and the water-like clarity of the gels are distinct additional advantages.


In plant tissue culture, Low Acyl Gellan Gum offers a promising alternative to agar because of its purity. Low Acyl Gellan Gum used at one-fifth the agar use level, resists contamination by molds, is easily washed from the plant tissue for transplanting, and allows clear observation of root and tissue development. It is extremely effective at low use levels and forms solid gels at concentrations as low as 0.1%. These are prepared by adding an electrolyte (e.g., a salt, an acid, or an anionic surfactant) to a hot gellan solution and then cooling.


Unique Properties & Functionalities of Gellan Gum:


*Excellent gelling performance,high gel strength
