Discover our Microbiology Pharma Product List


At DC Fine Chemicals, we understand that microbiology necessitates a selection of specific products for the cultivation, differentiation, and examination of microorganisms. The outcomes of pharmaceutical microbiology are largely determined by the caliber and particularity of the employed tools and reagents. Following is a categorisation of pivotal products we offer in this domain, with each serving a unique function in guaranteeing precision and consistency in results.


Sample Preparation and Cultivation

1. Basic Media and Supplements

    • INORGANIC SALTS & SPECIALTY PRODUCTS: Essential components for many culture media, ensuring the necessary mineral provision for microbial growth.
    • CARBOHYDRATES: Act as a primary carbon source, giving microorganisms essential energy.
    • AMINO ACIDS: Fundamental nutrients, enhancing the growth of specific microorganisms.
    • BLOOD DERIVATIVES: Used in enriched media like blood agar, facilitating the growth of fastidious microorganisms.

2. Selective and Differential Media

    • BILE ACIDS: Utilised in selective media to inhibit gram-positive bacteria and encourage gram-negative bacterial growth.
    • ANTIBIOTICS & PRESERVATIVES: Antibiotics prevent unwanted microbial growth in selective media, while preservatives extend the shelf life of solutions.

3. Stabilisers and Regulators

    • BUFFERS: Ensure that the pH level of culture media and solutions remains optimal, crucial for many microorganisms’ growth.


Diagnosis and Detection

1. Staining and Visualisation

    • STAINS & INDICATORS: Stains, like the Gram stain, differentiate and identify microorganisms. Indicators help detect pH changes or specific bio-productions.
    • CHROMOGENIC SUBSTRATES: Chromogenic substrates are colourless soluble molecules consisting of a chromophore – a chemical group that, after enzymatic cleavage, releases colour – and a specific enzymatic substrate. They are synthetically produced and are designed to possess a selectivity similar to the natural substrate for the enzyme. These compounds are useful for enzymatic detection, as chromogenic substrates specifically bind with the target enzyme. This reaction allows the enzyme to catalyze the separation of the chromophore group, resulting in an insoluble product with a distinctive colour – releasing the chromophore – that confirms the existence and activity of the enzyme under study.

2. Biochemical and Enzymatic Tests and Molecular Detection

    • ENZYMES: Crucial for determining the enzymatic activity of microorganisms in various biochemical tests.
    • NUCLEIC ACIDS AND DERIVATIVES: Integral for molecular techniques, facilitating precise identification and diagnosis.


Special and Auxiliary Products

    • OTHER KEY PRODUCTS: This general category encompasses essential products specifically tailored for microbiological techniques and procedures.
