For over 40 years Biolife produces culture media for Microbiology.
We were among the first companies to face this fascinating world, and with it to grow offering innovative formulations and always with reference to the analytical needs of Microbiologists.
Some of our culture media, first in the world industrially developed, did the history of Microbiology: Hektoen Enteric Agar, Giolitti and Cantoni Broth, MUG Media, ALOA.
Now our range of culture media selective supplements and enrichments includes more than 500 recipes and covers all the needs of a modern microbiological Laboratory.
Biolife offers awide range of Chromogenic Media in powder from, for some clinical applications.
