Description:This culture flask contained what is referred to as “Transgrow” medium, which is short for an experimental medium for transport and growth of Neisseria gonorrhoeae and N. meningitidis. In this case the medium had been inoculated with N. gonorrhoeae bacteria.
The genus Neisseria contains a number of species which are normal flora and pathogens of humans and animals. Of these species, the species of human origin--and particularly the pathogenic species, N. gonorrhoeae and N. meningitidis--have been studied extensively in an effort to control the infections they cause.
